A man has appeared in court charged with the murder of a pregnant woman and the death of the unborn baby girl she was carrying.

Tony McLernon, 23, Harlow, Essex, is accused of killing Eystna Blunnie, who was found fatally injured in the town in the early hours of June 27.

He also faces a charge of child destruction after it emerged that 20-year-old Blunnie, also from Harlow, was pregnant at the time of her death.

Blunnie was taken hospital but died of multiple head and facial injuries.
