    Woman and child murdered in village

    Post by Steph on Thu Jun 03, 2010 4:03 am

    A woman and her 23-year-month old son were murdered in their cottage in a sleepy rural village, it has been disclosed.

    Their attacker, a 44-year-old man believed to be the woman's partner or ex-partner, then killed himself at the house in Holbrook, Derbyshire.

    Police said they received a call from a concerned neighbour at about 11am on Wednesday. When officers arrived at the cottage on Well Yard they discovered the 38-year-old woman and the man dead.

    The baby was critically injured and taken by air ambulance to Royal Derby Hospital where he later died, Derbyshire Constabulary added.

    There had been reports a gun was used in the fatal attacks but police said this wasn't true.

    Neighbours were standing out in the street discussing the grim discovery at the cottage, tucked back from the main road that runs through the picturesque village.

    Lined with trees and well-kept gardens, Holbrook is in a conservation area in the heart of Amber Valley, Derbyshire.

    Detectives said they were not looking for anybody else in connection with the deaths, described by one woman in the village as a "terrible tragedy".

    Andrew West-Hunt, 52, landlord of the Spotted Cow, said the woman was a regular visitor to the pub having moved in to the area after living abroad as an ex-pat in France or Spain.

    He said: "She was intelligent and obviously educated. She said she had looked at a couple of places and then settled on one here."
