Woman arrested on suspicion of murder is stood down

A 61-YEAR-OLD woman from St Leonards arrested on suspicion of murder following a fire in the town in December last year has been stood down from bail.

James Baldwin, 57, died in the fire at his home in St Margaret’s Road on December 14. A post mortem showed that he died through the inhalation of fumes from the fire.

The woman was due to answer bail on Thursday (September 20), but following advice from Crown Prosecution Service, she has been been advised that her bail has been cancelled and no further action will be taken against her.

Police SAY they are not seeking anyone else in connection with the investigation.
