The body of murder victim Cristina Magda-Calancea can now be flown home to Romania after donations have raised more than £6,000.

The family of the 26-year-old who died after being stabbed in King’s Lynn on Friday, September 21, launched an online fundraising page last weekend.

Within a few days of the page going live, donations flooded in towards a £5,000 target.

At the time of going to press yesterday, £6,190 had been raised.

The family said on the page: “With broken hearts we come together in loving memory of Cristina. 

“She was taken from us too soon and without warning. Help us bless her family with the finances to cover the memorial and her repatriation to Romania.

“We love you Kyky…this one’s for you. Until we meet again…”

Miss Magda-Calancea was found with multiple stab wounds in Fenland Road at around 10.50pm.

She was taken to the town’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital but died later.

Gediminas Jasinskas, 29, of Tennyson Avenue, Lynn, has been charged with murder and possession of an offensive weapon.

He has been remanded in custody and is set to appear at Norwich Crown Court on Monday, October 22.
