Freda Walker was found dead in her home in Station Road, Langwith Junction, on January 15.

Her 88-year-old husband Kenneth Walker, former chairman for Bolsover District Council, was also attacked and left in a ‘critical condition’ after being found with life-threatening injuries.

But a Derbyshire police spokesperson said his condition has now improved and, although he remains in hospital, his condition is considered to be ‘stable’.
