An inquest into the death of a woman who was fatally stabbed at her Newmarket home has opened.
Clare Nash, 33, was found with severe injuries at a property in Brickfields Avenue after her room mate called Suffolk police saying a man had been threatening her with a knife.
Detective Inspector Matthew Connick told the court that on January 16, shortly after 9.35pm, officers arrived at the property and treated Miss Nash alongside paramedics but nothing could be done to save her.
The mother-of-two was later pronounced dead by a doctor from the Air Ambulance.
The court heard how 28-year-old Charles Jessop of Bakers Row, Newmarket, was arrested.
