Kelly Mary Fauvrelle: Man charged with killing pregnant woman and baby appears in court

July 15, 2019

A man accused of killing a heavily pregnant woman and her baby son has appeared in court.

Aaron McKenzie, 25, of Peckham, south London, allegedly murdered eight months pregnant Kelly Mary Fauvrelle, 26, who was stabbed to death in her house in Thornton Heath, south London, on 29 June.

He is also accused of the manslaughter of her baby son, named Riley by relatives after paramedics delivered him at the scene. He died in hospital four days later.

McKenzie was arrested on Thursday and appeared at Camberwell Magistrates' Court on Monday, where he is also charged with possession of a knife.

He stood in the dock, dressed in dark blue jeans and a grey sweater, with his arms folded during the brief hearing.

He spoke only to confirm his name, date of birth and that he is British, but did not give his address and was not asked to enter pleas to any of the charges.

District Judge Karim Ezzat told him he will next appear at the Old Bailey on Wednesday for a bail hearing before another court hearing on 12 August.

McKenzie was remanded in custody.

Ms Fauvrelle, a Royal Mail worker, was attacked in her bedroom on the ground floor of the family home.

Her whole family, including her mother, two brothers, sister and her sister's baby, were all in the house.

They were alerted by the sound of Ms Fauvrelle's screams at around 3.30am.

Two men had previously been arrested on suspicion of murder.

One, aged 37, was released with no further action, and a second, aged 29, has been released on bail until early August.
