Thomas Mair, the suspect of the murder of British MP Jo Cox, has been charged and is due to appear at London’s Westminster Magistrates Court later today (June 18).

“We have now charged a man with murder, grievous bodily harm, possession of a firearm with intent to commit an indictable offence and possession of an offensive weapon,” West Yorkshire Police Detective Superintendent Nick Wallen said in a statement.

Tributes to Jo Cox were made by several of her fellow Labour MPs following a minute’s silence.

Vigils are planned across the UK throughout the weekend.

Books of condolence have also been opened for people to pay their respects.

The MP, who was fatally attacked on Thursday (June 17), lived on a houseboat on the river Thames with her husband and two young daughters.
