The charges relate to the death of Gordon McGhee, aged 52, from Colchester, who was found dead inside a flat in Forest Road in the Greenstead area of Colchester in the early hours of Wednesday, August 22.
A post-mortem examination was held on August 24 and established the provisional cause of death to be from multiple stab wounds.
