A 25-year-old woman has been arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender in connection with a murder investigation in Oxford.

Christopher Lemonius, 27, was found injured in Jourdain Road, Blackbird Leys, on 1 June. He later died in hospital.

Ten people have already been charged - six with murder and four with perverting the course of justice.

Thames Valley Police said the arrested woman was released under investigation.

At an inquest at Oxford Coroner's Court in June, coroner Darren Salter said Mr Lemonius, of Sherwood Place, Barton, died from multiple injuries.
