Stabbing investigation continues after man sectioned

Despite this latest development, the investigation continues and we still need to hear from anyone who has not yet come forward.

I want to reiterate that we're not looking for anyone else in connection with Christina's murder.

The family, who are still extremely distressed, have been kept up to date with the progress of the investigation. We continue to support them at this very difficult time.

– Detective Superintendent Richard Baker
