Police have released the first picture of a 31-year-old woman who died in a suspected attempted murder suicide at her home.

Officers found Marta Chmielecka's body after forcing entry into an address in Wood Street, Kettering, Northants., just after midday on Tuesday (19/10).

A 38-year-old man was also found in the property with serious injuries - and he was then taken to hospital where he remains in a stable condition.

Northamptonshire Police say that he is being treated as a suspect after being found with Ms Chmielecka - and that inquiries are ongoing.

Cops are appealing for anyone who might have seen the couple last Friday (15/10) evening to come forward.

Detective Inspector Pete Long, from the Major Crime Team, said: "Our enquiries continue to progress quickly and we have been speaking to a lot of people and gathering a lot of evidence to piece together Marta's final movements and the circumstances surrounding her death.

"Specially trained officers continue to support her family and I want to reassure them that a large team of detectives are working on this case and that we are doing everything in our power to get Marta justice.

"I now want to appeal to anyone who was in Wood Street between 10.30pm and 11pm on Friday, October 15, to come forward, as they may have information that could help us. 

"Even if you think you saw nothing, if you were in the area between these times, please contact us.

"If you heard a disturbance at the property or noticed anything suspicious in the area last night or this morning, no matter how small, please contact us.

"We are satisfied that this is a contained incident and there is no wider risk to members of the public."
