A pensioner has been charged with the murder of his wife.
Dempsey Nibbs, 68 of Vince Court, Charles Square, Hoxton, was charged today with the murder of 60-year-old Judith Nibbs at their home in April 2014.
He is set to appear in custody at Thames Magistrates’ Court tomorrow.
Ms Nibbs was a carer who looked after the elderly for some years.
A neighbour, Dean Cummings, 28, said at the time: “I’ve known her all my life. She was a nice lady and didn’t have a bad word to say about anybody.
“She was always happy with a smile on her face. She had a disabled daughter and an older son who’s about 25.

“She worked for her kids. The daughter’s in a home. It’s just so sad.”
Tributes were laid outside her flat, with a colleague’s card reading: “Judith, can’t believe we are not going to see you or that smiling face and your laugh again. We are all going to miss you. Love and kisses, Meals on Wheels.”
