British police say a woman has been charged with the murder of an Irish man in London.

43-year-old Adrian Murphy, who was originally from Kilkenny, was found dead last June at a block of flats in the south of the city.

Diana Cristea (18) of Barnet in London was arrested on Tuesday.

She was later charged with one count of murder in relation to Mr Murphy.

She was also charged, in relation to a separate incident involving a 40-year-old man, to one count of poisoning - administering a substance to endanger life.

She has also been charged with two counts of theft - in relation to both men - and two counts of fraud by false representation.

25-year-old Joel Osei, of no fixed abode, was previously arrested and charged last October.

His charges relate to two counts of poisoning, two counts of theft as well as six counts of fraud by false representation.

He was subsequently charged with murder on December 5th.

He has been remanded in custody and will appear in court at the Old Bailey in London on February 17th.
