Kosi Selamaj, 36, will appear before the magistrate on Tuesday.
A 36-year-old man has been charged with the murder of primary school teacher Sabina Nessa.
Kosi Selmaj of Eastbourne, East Sussex, was arrested in the seaside town early on Sunday, and a light-colored Nissan Micra was seized in a leafy residential street about half a mile away.
He was charged on Monday, and will appear before Willesden Magistrates Court on Tuesday.
Nessa, 28, died on September 17 while passing through Cater Park in Kidbrook, southeast London, on her way to visit a friend.
His body was found about 24 hours later, covered with leaves, near a community center in the park.
The suspect is believed to have worked as a food delivery driver in Eastbourne and is believed to be originally from Eastern Europe.
An employee of a news agent near the flat where he was staying said he would come into the shop to turn up his phone or energy key, but would not speak.
“He was very quiet, didn’t say anything, just came up and left,” said the staff member.
Nessa teaches one-year classes at Rushe Green Primary School in Catford, also in south-east London.
On Friday, hundreds of people – including his sister – gathered in his memory at a candlelight ceremony held in Kidbrook’s Pegler Square.
Nessa’s sister Jebina Yasmin Islam cried as she addressed the crowd.
She said: “Words can’t describe how we’re feeling, it’s like we’re stuck in a nightmare and can’t get out of it – our world is shattered, we’re just lost for words Huh.
“No family should go through the phase we are going through.”
