A MAN arrested over the killing of Wisbech pensioner Una Crown has been released without charge, police said tonight.

He was arrested at an address in the town yesterday, on suspicion of her murder, before being taken to Peterborough’s Thorpe Wood police station.

But in a brief statement tonight, the Cambridgeshire force said he had been bailed pending further inquiries.

Mrs Crown, 86, was found dead in her home in Magazine Lane at 10.45am on Sunday, January 13. She had been repeatedly stabbed before being set alight.

A £10,000 reward is being offered by independent charity Crimestoppers for information which leads to the arrest and conviction of the killer.

Anyone with any information should call the Major Crime Unit on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
