John McGrory detained by detectives after mother of twins found strangled at her home at their home in Wooburn Green, Buckinghamshire

A former Scots Guardsman was under arrest tonight on suspicion of killing the mother of his twin boys after she was found strangled in their home.

John McGrory, 46, was detained by detectives investigating the murder of his wife Marie, who was discovered seriously injured and died hours later in hospital.

The couple’s two 14-year-old sons, who were at the house when the emergency services were called, were today being cared for by relatives as they come to terms with the death of their mother.

Paramedics and police were called to the semi-detached home in Wooburn Green, Buckinghamshire, yesterday, after a 999 call reporting that a woman had been seriously hurt.

She was rushed to Wycombe General Hospital in High Wycombe where she died despite the efforts of surgeons to save her.

A spokesman for Thames Valley Police said the death of 39-year-old Mrs McGrory was being treated as murder and confirmed that a man had been arrested at the scene.

The house was sealed off as forensic experts combed the property for clues to the killing in what is believed to have been a domestic incident. Read More
