Man charged over Mayfair socialite Robert Troyan's murder
Wednesday 20 March 2013
A 36-year-old man has been charged with the murder of a socialite who was found collapsed with head injuries.
Roberto Charles Troyan, 63, who was known as Robert, died on March 8 at his flat in Mount Street, Mayfair, central London.
David Jeffs, from Nottingham, will appear at Croydon Magistrates' Court today, the Metropolitan Police said.
Police believe that Mr Troyan was attacked at some point before 4pm on the day he died, and are continuing to appeal for witnesses to come forward.
Mr Troyan's friend Sean McGuigan told the Evening Standard last week that he believed the 63-year-old was "too trusting".
He said: "A lot of people around him were after his money. He had some incredibly expensive antiques in his flat including a vase worth £100,000.
"He was incredibly trusting, too trusting. He would lavish gifts on people and was quite carefree with his money."
Police have appealed for anyone who saw anything suspicious in or around Mount Street to contact them on 020 8721 4066 or Crimestoppers to remain anonymous on 0800 555 111.
