British actress Alex Kingston has put the home which she bought from murder suspect Robert Blake on the market - even though she never lived in it.

The ER star and her journalist husband FLORIAN HAERTEL closed their deal on the former BARETTA star's Studio City, California, home in May 2002 for $840,000 (GBP525,000) - just days after the veteran actor was charged with murdering his wife BONNIE LEE BAKLEY.

After a makeover, the contemporary-style house is now on the market for $1.6 million (GBP1 million).

Kingston and her husband never moved into the home, staying instead at their abode in the Hollywood Hills.
