A man has been charged with murder of a "beautiful, kind and sweet" young woman who was stabbed to death.

Bhavini Pravin was found by paramedics at a property in Moores Road, Leicester, at 12.39pm on Monday but she was pronounced dead at the scene.

Jigukumar Sorthi, 23, of East Park Road, Leicester, has been charged with murder and possession of a bladed/sharply pointed weapon, Leicestershire Police said.

He will be appearing at the city's magistrates' court today.

The 21-year-old's devastated family said in a statement: "As a family we could never have imagined that one day we would be issuing a tribute to Bhavini under such circumstances.

"Our world has been ripped apart by her death and we can't believe she has gone. A light has gone out in our lives.

"Bhavini was a devoted daughter and sister, loved by all who knew her.

"She was beautiful, kind and sweet. Our lives will never be the same without her.

"All we can hope for is Bhavini to be at peace and for our request for privacy to be respected."

Detective Inspector Kenny Henry, from the East Midlands Special Operations Unit Major Crime team, is leading the investigation.

He said: “Our investigation into Bhavini’s tragic death is ongoing and I continue to appeal to anyone who has any information about this incident to make contact with us.

“Her family are understandably devastated by her death and we owe it to them, and Bhavini, to determine exactly what happened.

“Bhavini’s relatives have asked to be left alone at this difficult time to grieve and try to make sense of what has happened to their daughter.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact the force on 101 quoting incident 250 of March 2.
