Man, 44, arrested after children discover mother dead in a pool of blood on their return home from school, Luton - 11th Sept 2011

A man has been arrested in connection with the death of a 44-year-old woman found stabbed to death at her home.

Shobhna Jethwa's teenage daughter Bijal, and Mrs Jethwa's two young sons Dillon, 12, and Salesh, 11, arrived home from school to find their mother lying in a pool of blood.

The 15-year-old girl called paramedics to the home but by then it was too late and police launched a murder investigation.

Sources said that Mrs Jethwa, whose husband Rajesh - known as Jeff - was at work at the local railway station at the time, knew her killer.

Mrs Jethwa, who died on Friday, lived with her family in an end-of-terrace three-bedroom house in Luton. Yesterday a bunch of flowers had been left by a tree in the front garden.

On Saturday neighbour Karen Day, 45, said: 'It is awful. The family have lived here for years and years.' Read More
