A man has been charged with murdering a mother and daughter in their own home.
Anthony Showers, 42, is accused of killing Jade Hales, 28, and her 53-year-old mother Karen Lyn Hales, who both died of severe head injuries.
The bodies of the victims were found by police at their house in Anfield, Liverpool, on Monday, after concerns were raised about their welfare.
Jade’s pet dog was also found dead.
Showers, of Clarendon Road, Anfield, will appear at Liverpool Magistrates’ Court later.
He is thought to be the ex-partner of Miss Hales.
