A man arrested on suspicion of murdering a Wisbech pensioner has been released without charge.

The 44-year-old Wisbech man was arrested in January on suspicion of murdering 86-year-old Una Crown in January 2013.

He answered bail today (Monday) in connection with his arrest. Detectives released him without charge.

Mrs Crown was found stabbed to death in her home in Magazine Lane, Wisbech on January 13.

Her body had also been set alight.

An inquest into her death is set to be held next week.

A Cambridgeshire police spokesman said the case was still open, and appealed for anyone with information should call police on 101, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
