Investigation continues into death of Newmarket woman at New Cheveley Road property as police given extra time to question 57-year-old




Police have been granted an additional 30 hours to hold a 57-year-old Newmarket man who is being questioned in relation to a woman's death in the town on Saturday.

Detectives were given the extra time after an application was made for a warrant of further detention at Ipswich Magistrates’ Court earlier today.

It comes after the woman in her 40s, who was found dead by police at a property in New Cheveley Road on Saturday evening, was named locally as Donna Price.

The 50-year-old man was released on bail and is due to return to police on September 1.

A cordon remains in place at the New Cheveley Road address while the investigation continues.
