Additional time granted to question man in murder investigation

Detectives investigating the death of a woman in Newmarket have been granted more time to question a man arrested in connection with the incident.

Officers were called just after 10.10pm on Saturday 7th August, to a property on New Cheveley Road in the town.

An ambulance attended the scene but a woman, aged in her 40s, was sadly pronounced deceased a short time later.

Shortly after the incident, police arrested two men from Newmarket, aged 57 and 50, on suspicion of murder. The 50 year old man was released on bail and is due to return to police on 1st September.

An application was made for a warrant of further detention at Ipswich Magistrates’ Court today, Monday 9th August, where detectives were granted an additional 30 hours to question the 57 year old man.

A cordon remains in place while an investigation into the circumstances continues.

Early enquiries lead detectives to believe that this was an isolated incident and there is no wider threat to the local community.

Officers are continuing to appeal for witnesses, particularly anyone who was in the area of New Cheveley Road, Cricket Field Road and surrounding streets, who may have seen or heard anything suspicious, to make contact with them.

Any residents in the local area with a doorbell camera or private CCTV are also asked to review their footage, as well as anyone with motion activated dash-cam footage.
