Ex-husband held in murder probe

Detectives investigating the riverbank murder of divorcee Karen Skipper as she walked her two dogs are questioning her ex-husband. Philip Skipper, 38, was arrested early yesterday and taken to Fairwater police station in Cardiff.

The partially-clothed body of Mrs Skipper, 34, was found in the River Ely on 10 March. Her hands had been tied behind her back with a dog-lead. Tests showed she had been dragged through brambles and into the water where she was held under until she drowned.
