Two men have been bailed by police investigating the murder of Wisbech pensioner Una Crown.
Detectives investigating the killing of the 86-year-old arrested a 40-year-old man in March and a 36-year-old man in Wisbech at about 8am on Tuesday.
Officers also carried out searches at addresses in March and Wisbech.
Two men were held at Thorpe Wood Police Station, in Peterborough. On Wednesday night, both were bailed until July 22.
The arrests come a month after the investigation was re-launched with a fresh team of detectives from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Major Crime Unit.
