Woman, 30, found dead
Monday 12 July 2010
A man was arrested after a woman was found dead and a child was left critically injured at a house in north Wales.
Police discovered the body of the 30-year-old in Flint following reports of a disturbance in the early hours of yesterday morning.
The child – understood to be a 12-year-old boy – was taken to hospital. Neighbours said a Polish family and a lodger, also a Polish national, had moved into the house just before Christmas.
It is believed a man ran out of the house into the street shortly before the emergency services were called and shouted for help. North Wales Police said officers arrived at the house at 1.30am and found the woman dead.
A spokesman added a 27-year-old man was in custody and the boy was in a "critical but stable condition".
A woman neighbour, who lives doors away from the murder scene, said: "I've been told that a man came out of the house and shouted: "Help, help," before someone called 999. I did not know the woman involved but I knew her son because he calls round to see my boy and play out. I hope he pulls through; it's terrible."
