Detectives investigating a murder in Kettering are appealing to anyone who was in Wood Street between 10.30pm and 11pm on Friday, October 15, to come forward. 

A murder investigation was launched on October 19, after police officers forced entry into a property in Wood Street and discovered a woman’s body inside. She has now been named as 31-year-old woman – Marta Chmielecka.

A 38-year-old man who we are treating as a suspect was also found inside the property with serious injuries. He remains in hospital in a serious but stable condition.

Detective Inspector Pete Long from the Major Crime Team, said: “Our enquiries continue to progress quickly and we have been speaking to a lot of people and gathering a lot of evidence to piece together Marta’s final movements and the circumstances surrounding her death.

“Specially trained officers continue to support her family and I want to reassure them that a large team of detectives are working on this case and that we are doing everything in our power to get Marta justice.

“I now want to appeal to anyone who was in Wood Street between 10.30pm and 11pm on Friday, October 15, to come forward, as they may have information that could help us. Even if you think you saw nothing, if you were in the area between these times, please contact us.”

At the present time, Northamptonshire Police is satisfied that this is a contained incident and there is no wider risk to members of the public.

Extra foot patrols continue to take place in the local area to reassure the community. If you have any concerns, please do feel free to approach one of our officers.
