A family has paid a moving tribute to a mum whose death this week sparked a murder inquiry.

Sarah Keith, aged 26, died on Tuesday in a flat in Broadway, Horsforth.

Her body was found at the home she shared with her partner Carl Chadwick, aged 35, who appeared at Leeds Magistrates Court yesterday charged with murdering her.

He was remanded in custody to appear at Leeds Crown Court on April 19.

In a statement, Sarah’s family spoke of her kindness and her ability to make those around her smile.

“Sarah was a kind and loving mother, daughter and sister," the family said.

"She always put a smile on everyone’s face."

And the statement continued to talk about the impact of the death on Sarah's loved ones.

It said: "Losing her has left us all feeling so sad and hurt”.
