THE husband of a nurse found dead in Leeds has been charged with her murder after he was arrested in Scotland, police have confirmed.
Eileen Barrott, 50, was found dead at her home in West Yorkshire, around 6.30pm on Sunday night.
Her husband Mark Barrott was then arrested in Scotland four days later on Thursday.
In a statement released today, West Yorkshire Police confirmed that he has now been charged with her murder.
He is set to appear before Leeds Magistrates Court on Monday 23 August.
Speaking earlier this week, Chief Inspector Vanessa Rolfe said: “We would like to thank all the members of the public who contacted us with information, and also our colleagues in Police Scotland for their assistance and support with this investigation.”
It comes after emergency services were called to a property in Naburn Fold at around 6.30pm on August 15 after a woman suffered “serious injuries”.
Tragic Eileen was a “devoted” NHS nurse at a hospital in Leeds.
Eileen was said to be a “kind-hearted” mum-of-two in a touching tribute from a friend of 25 years.
The pal, who did not wish to be named, said: “She was so kind and she had such a lovely smile. But you could tell she was always nervous.
“She was the nicest person, but she was very shy. She was a nurse and worked 24 hours a day, she was so devoted.”
