Man arrested after woman’s death

Police searching for wanted man William Cummins, in connection with the death of Jacqueline Harrison, have arrested a 51-year-old man in Dorchester in Dorset on suspicion of murder.

Jacqueline, 47, was found dead at her flat in Gresham Rd, Worcester, on Thursday 12th April.

A post mortem examination the following day showed that she had suffered significant assault injuries. Detectives are keen to speak to anyone who saw or spoke to Jacqueline in the last week of March or the first week of April.

West Mercia officers have been working with colleagues in Dorset and Kent as part of the murder investigation. Detective Inspector Gerry Smith at West Mercia Police said: “We...want to speak to Jacqueline’s friends or associates who may know about her last movements.”
