Durban musician Charlie Ridgway appears in court for girlfriend's murder

Durban musician Charlie Ridgway appeared in the Pinetown Magistrate's Court on Tuesday for the murder of his girlfriend.

The 56-year-old musician of Gillitts, was released on R2 000 bail and was ordered to hand in his British passport.

His girlfriend, 55-year-old Jenny King of Forest Hills, was found dead in the bedroom of her home by a relative on Saturday morning.

It is alleged the couple had an altercation late on Friday, or in the early hours of Saturday, before Ridgway left.

A close friend of King's - who did not wish to be named - told News24 that a post-mortem report stated the cause of death was blunt force trauma and internal bleeding.
