Man jailed for attempted murder after 2009 assault in Romford now charged with murder following victim’s death

A man serving a sentence for the attempted murder of a woman in Walmer Close, Romford in November 2009 has been charged with murder following her death.

Carolyn Kemp was aged 34 when she was assaulted by Trevor Baker in 2009. As a result she was left with permanent brain damage.

Baker subsequently pleaded guilty to attempted murder and was sentenced to 16 year’s imprisonment.

Ms Kemp died on September 27, 2022. A forensic post mortem conducted at Queens Hospital, Romford, found a causal link between the brain trauma she sustained in the assault and her death.

On Tuesday December 5, Trevor Baker, 52, currently of HMP Warren Hill, was charged with murder.

He is due to appear in custody at Barkingside Magistrates Court on Monday December 18.
