The woman was one of two people suspected to have been murdered in domestic incidents in Wolverhampton on the same weekend.

A 73-year-old man died in hospital on Sunday after being attacked at a home in Whitmore Reans on Saturday evening. A 32-year-old man has been charged with his murder.

The two-storey home on Tangmere Road where the woman was killed remained cordoned off on Monday, with a blue forensic tent in place in front of the house and uniformed officers guarding the scene.

Tape was also in place preventing anyone but residents from accessing the end of the road, which is part of a new-build estate in between Bilston C of E Primary School and the train line.

Councillor Beverley Momenabadi, who represents the area, said the incident had left local residents shocked.

"What has happened has truly devastated and shocked our local community, that I both live in and represent as a councillor.

"I have received dozens of messages from neighbours and residents offering their condolences. Many are in sheer disbelief.

"My prayers are with the woman’s family and I hope that anyone involved is brought to justice."
