A woman has been charged in connection with a historic Sunderland murder investigation.
On January 7 2004 Scott Pritchard, 19, was fatally injured outside his home in Lyndsay Close, Hendon, and was confirmed dead on arrival at Sunderland Royal Infirmary.
Nobody has been convicted in the 14 years since the incident, however the case has remained open ever since.
Karen Tunmore, 36, from Killingworth, was charged on Friday August 3 with murder and has been remanded in custody.
Tunmore will appear before Bedlington Magistrates’ Court on Saturday August 4.
Police continue to support Scott’s family at this difficult time.
