A local woman has been arrested in connection with the murder of 92-year-old William Davis.

The 35-year-old woman was arrested last night and continues to help police with their inquiries this morning.

Mr Davis was found collapsed at his home on Hobley Street, Willenhall on Sunday evening.

He died as a result of severe head injuries.

At a press conference held by the force yesterday, Detective Superintendent Richard Baker described Mr Davis as a "fiercely independent" and "decorated" war veteran, who was father to two, grandfather to four and great grandfather to one.

The house remains sealed off and forensic searches are continuing.
