Following the discovery of the body of a woman in a lay-by on the A413 at Gerrards Cross in Buckinghamshire a man has been charged with murder.

The body of Anita Kapoor from Hayes in London was discovered by a member of the public at 8.36am on Tuesday 23rd June 2015 in undergrowth close to a lay-by on Amersham Road, A413, Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire.

A 34 year old man of Quaker Lane, Southall, London, was arrested on Wednesday 24th June 2015 and on Saturday 27th June 2015 he was charged with Anita’s murder.

A Home Office post mortem was carried out on Wednesday 24th June 2015 and cause of death was given as asphyxiation, due to compression of the neck.

Senior Investigating Officer, Det Ch Insp Kevin Brown of the Major Crime Unit, said: ‘As a result of extensive enquiries in Thames Valley and the Metropolitan Police areas, … [the man], aged 34, of Quaker Lane, Southall, London, was identified and arrested on Wednesday and has now been charged with murder.

He is due to appear at High Wycombe Magistrates’ Court on Monday 29th June  2015.

The family of Anita Kapoor continue to be supported by specially trained officers and our thoughts and condolences remain with them.

I would like to thank the Metropolitan Police and the public for their continued assistance in this investigation which will continue until trial.
