Leeds Teacher Death: Man Charged Over Message
One man has been charged and another arrested in connection with what police describe as "malicious communications" following the murder of teacher Ann Maguire in Leeds.
Mrs Maguire, 61, was stabbed to death in front of her students at Corpus Christi Catholic College last Monday, where she had taught for more than 40 years.
West Yorkshire Police said Jake Newsome, 21, from the Harehills area in Leeds, has been released on bail after being charged for the alleged abuse.
He is due to appear before Leeds Magistrates Court on Wednesday.
A 42-year-old man, from Port Talbot, South Wales, has also been arrested and remains in custody.
Today prayers have been said at dozens of churches across West Yorkshire for the family of the dedicated Spanish teacher and mother-of-two.
The Catholic Diocese of Leeds wrote to around 90 churches and urged them to pray for Mrs Maguire, who was due to retire in September.
A spokesman for the diocese said: "We are asking everybody to remember Ann Maguire in their prayers, and to remember her family who will be under pressure and stress at this time.
"She was amazingly well known in the local community for what she had done for young people.
"Everybody is so hurt by what has happened and taking time to recover.
"This is a time to remember her. We are talking about three generations of people - children, parents and grandparents - whose lives she has touched.
"She made a major difference to a lot of people's lives through the care she gave them and her teaching.
"Part of her philosophy was to make sure that students achieved their best, and this is a chance to remember her."
A book of condolence has also been opened at the cathedral in Leeds for those who want to express their sympathies.
A 15-year-old boy is in custody charged with Mrs Maguire's murder.
The teenager, who cannot be named for legal reasons, appeared via video-link at Leeds Crown Court on Friday. There was no application for bail.
The case was adjourned until July 11 for a plea and case management hearing.
A date for the start of the murder trial was set for November 3.
