Man Charged With Elderly Mother’s Murder

In Great Baddow, close to Chelmsford, Essex, a man named Sebastian Compton is facing murder charges against his mother, Michele Romano.

Despite allegations that Compton has mental illness, he was charged with his mother’s murder on Sunday after being detained on suspicion of the crime on Friday.

He was reportedly too sick to appear when brought in for his first appearance at Chelmsford Magistrates Court. Evelyn Hicks, his defense attorney, said that the prospect of being taken before a judge might worsen his mental condition as he may be unable to comprehend the proceedings.

Deputy District Judge Sarah Hannah remanded him in jail and ordered his appearance tomorrow before Chelmsford Crown Court via video connection, saying she could handle the matter without him. In addition, on Saturday in Chelmsford, she had charged Compton with assault for allegedly punching a police policeman. The court was informed that it lacked the authority to handle any bail applications, and no pleas to the charges were made.

Thierry Romano, better known as Gingi, is a musician from France. His wife, Mrs. Romano, was a caretaker and a charity store employee. The couple is said to have resided in Chelmsford for 25 years.

Initial reports of a suspicious individual were received by the Essex Police on Friday, around 400 yards from Compton’s residence. Following their interaction with the guy, they discovered a lady inside a home who was gravely hurt. The unfortunate lady, who was in her 60s, was declared dead on the spot despite paramedics’ best attempts.

Police from the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate, led by Detective Chief Superintendent Rob Kirby, have promised to stay at the site as they investigate, expressing their deep worry for the tranquil neighborhood. He informed the public that high-visibility patrols would be in place in the Great Baddow region for a few days and requested that anybody with video or information from the area, especially around Readers Court and Dorset Avenue, come forward.

Great Baddow is the second most considerable English hamlet, after Bradfield in South Yorkshire, and it is home to around 15,000 people.
