Bicester murder police arrest man after body found

A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a woman's body was found at a house in Oxfordshire.

The 40-year-old was detained after the victim was discovered in Bicester, at about 10:30 GMT.

Attempts were made by emergency crews to resuscitate the woman, after she was found at the property in Lucerne Avenue.

But she was declared dead after being taken to hospital. Police said they were not looking for anyone else.

However, Det Ch Insp Joe Kidman, of Thames Valley Police, has appealed for witnesses.

"We are keen to speak with anyone in Lucerne Avenue this morning who may have important information that will assist us in building a clear picture of this tragic incident," he said.
