Detectives investigating the death of Barnsley woman Jill Hibberd have made a further arrest as their investigation continues.

Earlier today (Tuesday 12 June), officers arrested a 31-year-old woman from the Wombwell area of Barnsley, on suspicion of perverting the course of justice. She has since been released under investigation.

Miss Hibberd, 73, was found deceased at her home on Roy Kilner Road, Wombwell at around 7.45am on Thursday 31 May.

A post-mortem examination concluded she died as a result of multiple stab wounds.

A 22-year-old man was arrested earlier this month on suspicion of murder, burglary and theft and released under investigation.

Lee Trevor Fueloep, 40, of Willow Garth, Wombwell, was charged with murder and burglary on Sunday, 4 June. He remains in custody until he is due at Sheffield Crown Court later this month.
