A man was last night charged with the murder of a woman in Firth Park in Sheffield.

Police charged 36-year-old Thahi Harroba Manaa, of The Oval, Firth Park, with murder.

Detectives were called at about 2.15pm on Tuesday to an address on The Oval, where the woman’s body was found.

Formal identification has not yet taken place but police believe the dead woman to be Sara Al Shourefi, who was 28.

Manaa is due to appear at Sheffield Magistrates’ Court today.

Three other men, all in their 30s, who were arrested in connection with the murder, have now all been bailed, along with an older woman who had also been detained.

A post-mortem examination which started on Wednesday is still being held to determine the cause of death, and has not yet concluded.

The house where the body was found remained cordoned off yesterday and under police guard.

House-to-house inquiries have been conducted in the area and forensic examinations have been carried out at the property.

A South Yorkshire Police spokeswoman said: “A 36-year-old man has been charged in connection with the murder of a woman in Sheffield. Formal identification has not yet taken place but detectives believe the woman to be 28-year-old Sara Al Shourefi.

“A post-mortem examination being held to determine the cause of death has not yet concluded.”
