A man arrested on suspicion of murdering a care home worker found dead at a house in West Sussex has been granted a further period of bail.

The body of 44-year-old Debbie Levey was found at Cherry Tree Cottage on the B2178 in East Ashling, near Chichester, by a colleague on 28 January.

A 45-year-old man from Selsey arrested the same evening was known to Ms Levey.

Sussex Police said he had been rebailed until 4 June while full forensic reports were being assessed.

Officers initially thought they were dealing with a sudden death but became increasingly suspicious of the circumstances.

A post-mortem examination did not find any obvious cause of death.

Ms Levey, who was described by her father John Etherton as "a most caring and compassionate person" worked at the Leaholme care home in Chichester as a care scheme manager.
