Man charged with murder - Standish
Friday 22nd February, 2008

A 40-year-old man has been charged with murder after a woman was stabbed to death in her home in Standish.

John Rao (born 09/10/1967) has also been charged with attempted murder following the incident on Tuesday 19 February 2008.

Just before 6.40pm, police were called to a house on Collingwood Street following a report that two women had been stabbed.

On arrival officers found the victims, Geeta Rao, and a 73-year-old woman, with serious injuries and they were taken to hospital for treatment.

Geeta (born 11/3/1964) has since died as a result of her injuries. The 73-year-old remains in a serious but stable condition.

Rao is due to appear before Wigan Magistrates' Court later today, Friday 22 February 2008.
