A man has been charged with murder following the death of a mum-of-four in North Wales last week.

Russell Norman James Marsh 29, of Shotton, will appear before magistrates on Monday.

He was charged after Jade Ward, 27, died following an incident on Thursday.

A statement from North Wales Police said: ‘Officers investigating an incident in Shotton in the early hours of Thursday, in which 27-year-old Jade Ward died, have charged a man with murder.

‘Russell Norman James Marsh, 29, of Shotton has been remanded in custody and will appear before magistrates on Monday.’

Detective Chief Inspector Jon Salisbury-Jones added: ‘I would like to thank the local community for all the valuable assistance they have provided.’

He urged anyone with information to contact police.

It comes after a balloon release was held on Chevrons Road on Saturday in memory of Ms Ward, which was organised by her devastated sister Taylor Wesley.

Ms Wesley said: “‘here were loads of people, I would say a couple of hundred. It was a great turn out. I cried my eyes out and sobbed all the way through.

‘She would have been so proud and it shows just how loved she was.’

A GoFundMe page set up to support Jade’s four sons has now raised over £10,000.

Paying tribute, one woman wrote: ‘Thinking of you all at this sad time, such a beautiful lady with a lovely smile who will be sadly missed by lots of people. Rest in peace.’
