He has been released under investigation while enquiries continue.

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. 

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

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