A man has been charged with the murder of a woman in Queen Square, Brighton, on Sunday 17 February.

Ty Medland, 25, of Cavell Avenue, Peacehaven, has been charged with the murder of his wife Samantha Medland, known as Sam, and is due to appear at Brighton Magistrates' Court on Wednesday 20 February.
