A man who was arrested in connection with a deadly house fire that killed a 52-year-old woman and left her teenage daughter with 40 per cent burns to her body is unfit to be interviewed.
West Midlands Police said the 56-year-old man, who was detained as part of the investigation into the fatal blaze in the Tyseley area of Birmingham, has been assessed by mental health experts and taken to a secure health facility.
Detectives launched a murder inquiry last Thursday after forensic examinations of the scene, on Cateswell Road, confirmed that the fire had been started deliberately.
A post mortem examination has confirmed that the woman died as a result of smoke inhalation.
