The surviving victim of the double stabbing in Bury St Edmunds last week is no longer in a critical condition, police have confirmed.
Police were called an apartment complex in Harland Court, off Station Hill, at about 3pm on Tuesday, April 26.
Officers found two victims with stab wounds in a flat.
Karl Skoulding, 40, died at the scene shortly after officers arrived, while another victim, a woman in her 40s was rushed to the hospital in a critical condition.
Police have now described her condition as stable.
Examining Mr Skoulding's body, a Home Office post mortem determined multiple stab wounds as the cause of death.
A murder probe has been launched and two people – including a 17-year-old boy from Ipswich – were arrested on suspicion of murder.
Police have confirmed the teenager will not face any charges, while the other suspect, a 38-year-old man, has been released on bail until Friday, May 22.
Detectives continue to appeal for any witnesses to the attack and would like to hear from anyone who was in the Harland Court area between 2pm and 3pm on the day of the incident.
Anyone with information related to the incident is asked to contact the Major Investigation Team at Suffolk police, quoting reference number 37/24952/22.
