Detectives investigating the murder of a man in Ipswich have made a further arrest.

Daniel Saunders, 32, was stabbed in Turin Street last month. He died at the scene. A post-mortem examination concluded that the cause of death was as a result of a single stab wound to the abdomen.

Today a 20-year-old man from Colchester has been arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender.

Police have already charged a 17 year old from Bury St Edmunds with murder. Three other teenagers arrested in connection with the attack have been released under investigation.

Burglar sentenced for string of Suffolk thefts

A man's been jailed for just over two years for carrying out a series of burglaries across Ipswich.

Kearon Braybrook pleaded guilty to eight burglaries between September and October 2017.

The 33 year old broke into five houses and three businesses.

Braybook had already been jailed for five years in January 2018 for a previous string of burglaries. The latest sentencing will be added on.

Braybrook refused to work with Suffolk Constabulary's Op Converter team having been repeatedly offered an opportunity to admit these further crimes.
Detectives continued to investigate the other burglary offences in the same area of Ipswich and were able to secure further charges which led to the further conviction.

"The additional period of imprisonment imposed should act as a stark reminder to convicted offenders that other offences will continue to be thoroughly investigated and justice sought. There are opportunities for offenders to work with the police to take offences into consideration when they are sentenced, which means they can start afresh when their sentence lapses. Braybrook chose not to follow this course of action and has suffered the consequences."
