A MURDER suspect, believed to be the husband of the victim, remains under police guard at Ipswich Hospital today.

The body of Sharon Eileen Green, 53, was found at her home in Marlesford, near Wickham Market, by a member of her family at around 6.45am on Friday.

A spokeswoman for Suffolk police said a post mortem examination has now been carried out and has concluded Mrs Green's death was as a result of stab wounds to the chest.

It is believed the Greens lived with at least one of their sons, who are said to be in their 20s.

Mr and Mrs Green were the landlord and landlady of the Old Bell before it shut down around five or six years ago, according to villagers.

Part of the scene is cordoned off by police tape and there is also tape surrounding the crash site in Wickham Market, with debris from the collision visible from the road.

Officers are keen to hear from anyone who may have been in the area of Marlesford or Wickham Market between midnight and 7am on Friday morning and may have seen or heard anything that may be relevant to the inquiry.
