Man charged with murder of London gay activist
A man has been charge with the murder of a London LGBT activist.
Julian Aubrey was found dead with multiple stab wounds in his home in Kensington, London, on October 30 last year.
The dead activist worked with victims of sexual abuse, and was also a former head of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea LGBT liaison group.
Yesterday Enrique Facelli, 48, also of Kensington, was charged with murder yesterday in connection with the killing.
He will appear in custody at Westminster Magistrates’ Court today (March 1).
Four other men who were arrested on suspicion of murder remain released under investigation.
Julian’s brother-in-law Nigel Turner told the Evening Standard: “Julian was a great guy. I can’t come to terms with what happened.
“He had his problems but he had a lot of time for other people.
“He did a lot of counselling work. He was a good counsellor, he had great empathy, and I’m sure he helped a lot of people. He loved art, he loved people.”
