A former husband and wife who were stabbed to death in Gloucestershire have been named.
A murder investigation was launched after their bodies were found at two different locations 15 miles apart this morning (2 March).
Clive Warrington, 67, and Valerie Warrington, 73 were previously married and later separated.
Emergency services were called to Sherborne Place in Cheltenham, with a report of a serious assault, at 6.25am. Officers arrived to find a man with stab wounds and he was declared dead at the scene.
Following concerns for the welfare of a second person, officers visited a property in Whiteshoots Hill in Bourton-on-the-Water.
They discovered the body of a woman, who had also suffered stab wounds.
A man from Cheltenham has been arrested on suspicion of murder in connection with both deaths, which are being linked by detectives. The suspect was arrested near the scene in Cheltenham.
A Gloucestershire Constabulary spokesperson said: “Officers are not currently looking for anyone else in connection with the ongoing investigation.
“The thoughts of Gloucestershire Constabulary are with their family at this difficult time.”
