Bernadette Kearney, senior lawyer for the Crown Prosecution Service said: “Following a careful review of the evidence provided to me by Hampshire Constabulary I have authorised the police to charge Abdelaziz El Yechioui Ourzat, 29, from Southampton with the murder of Cristina Ortiz-Lozano, 28.”

Following her death, Ms Ortiz-Lozano’s family released a statement saying: “Cristina, you passed away too soon, to join your dog Noa.

“We will never forget your vitality, your happiness or your determination to achieve your goals.

“You always gave the best of yourself to your family, your doggies, your dreams.”

“The word impossible was not in your vocabulary.

“We will always love you and miss you.”

The defendant has been detained in custody to appear at Southampton Magistrates’ Court later.
