A Surrey contracts manager has been charged with the murder of a 41-year-old Brixton-based architect, who died last week. Kim Grant was taken to the East Surrey Hospital in the early hours of Saturday 29 June following a 'domestic incident' at Kevin Gibbens' home in Horley. She was discharged later that day but her condition worsened and after returning to south London she was admitted to King's College Hospital. She died on Tuesday 2 July.
Gibbens was arrested and charged with Grant's murder at East Reigate Police Station, where he was held until his hearing at South East Surrey Magistrates' Court on 4 July. Gibbens was remanded in custody pending a trial on 11 July at the Old Bailey.
Detective Chief Inspector Jonathan Johncox of Surrey Police, encouraged anyone who had been in the Horley area at the time to come forward.
