A WOMAN has been charged with murdering a 30-year-old man found dead on New Year's Day.
Hannah Sindrey, 23, from Rayleigh, Essex, has been accused of killing Paul Fletcher after he was found dead at a flat on January 1.
She is due to appear at Chelmsford Magistrates' Court later.
Two other people were arrested on suspicion of murder, and one has been released without charge.
Essex Police said a 25-year-old woman from Basildon has been released on police bail pending further inquiries, while a 39-year old man was released without charge.
Tributes were paid to Paul Fletcher, known as "Dod" to his friends, after he was found "unresponsive" just before 1am on New Year's Day.
Paramedics desperately tried to save him but he tragically died at the scene in Worcester Drive on January 1.
Dod's grieving sister posted a tribute on social media, writing: "RIP little bro.
"I know we (didn't) see eye to eye a lot of the time but you are still my little brother and I love you.
"Wish we made peace. Love u always."
Another relative said Dod had been "mending his troubled life".
The family member told The Sun Online: "He was incredibly passionate about supporting his family and friends.
"He never would let someone go without."
Another pal Crystalann Kelly, 35, added: "He was always happy go lucky lad and we always had a laugh and joke.
“He is a great dad to his son and I'm feeling sorry for him at this sad time.”
The Dagenham mum said Dod, as he was known to all his pals, was much-loved.
She said: “If anyone needed help he would be there to help them.
"I'm gonna miss him and so is all his friends and family."
Other friends said Dod was a "good lad" with another saying: "Sad news he was to young to be taken."
Essex Police initially said they believe all parties involved were known to each other.
They said on January 1: "We'd like to thank neighbours in the area who were incredibly calm and helpful on scene this morning."
