A man was stabbed to death at flats in Wolverhampton city centre.
Detectives were today quizzing a woman on suspicion of murder after the victim died of his wounds.
Police were called out by paramedics to a flat in Market Square.
They found a 53-year-old man being treated for a knife wound but despite a battle to save him, he died at the scene.
Officers said the investigation is being treated as a ‘domestic incident’ and a post mortem was being carried out today.
Detective Inspector Harry Harrison, from West Midlands Police force CID, said: “I have a team of experienced investigators working on this case.
“The victim is known to the suspect and, although we are clearly at an early stage in this investigation, it is being treated as a domestic incident.
“A forensic post mortem examination will be conducted today which, combined with other inquiries, should start yielding answers about how and why the man died.”
Officers were called to the flat just before 1.45pm yesterday.
House-to-house inquiries have been carried out and forensic investigators have scoured the flat for clues.
Family liason officers were supporting the victim’s relatives and police remained at the scene today as residents spoke of their shock. They said the victim had been living in the flat for around three to four months. Some residents said they were only aware what had happened when they saw police cars outside the flat.
Resident Barbara Wegrzyn, aged 25 and a housewife, said: “I’m very surprised to hear there’s been a murder. I was away over the weekend so I didn’t realise anything was wrong until now.”
A 49-year-old woman was today being quizzed by detectives after being arrested on suspicion of murder. Police today issued an appeal to anyone with information which might help the investigation to get in touch on 101.
