Lesley Caile, 48, from North View, Hunwick, near Crook, was found at her home in the village on Christmas Eve. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

An injured man, 46, who also lives in the house was airlifted to James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough.

He has been arrested on suspicion of murder and police said he would be interviewed in due course.
