A man has been charged with the murders of four family members who were stabbed to death in south-east London, the Metropolitan police have said.
Joshua Jacques, 28, from Hither Green, is accused of killing Dolet Hill, 64, an NHS worker, and her partner, Denton Burke, 58, who was found stabbed after an incident in Delaford Road, Bermondsey, on Monday.
Hill’s daughter, Tanysha Ofori-Akuffo, 45, also known as Rachquel, who lived in Kennington, and Ofori-Akuffo’s daughter, Samantha Drummonds, 27, who lived in Forest Hill, also died at the house.
Jacques would appear in custody at Westminster magistrates’ court on Thursday, the Metropolitan police said.
He was charged on Thursday morning after an investigation by homicide detectives from the Met’s specialist crime command.
