A man is being questioned over the murder of a 31-year-old woman.
American born Janee Parsons was found by police who were called to her detached home in Lucerne Avenue in Bicester, Oxfordshire, on Saturday after reports of a row.
Despite attempts by officers and ambulance staff to resuscitate her, she was declared dead at hospital.
A 38-year-old man, believed to be her husband, remains in police custody after he was arrested on suspicion of murder.
A post-mortem examination found that mother-of-two Mrs Parsons died from multiple incised wounds, Thames Valley Police said.
