Officers were called to the Hare and Hounds, in North Brink, by the ambulance service at 11.45am on Saturday, following the discovery of 49-year-old Virginja Jurkiene’s body.

Cambridgeshire Police confirmed at 11.20am this morning that detectives have charged Dainotas Doblys, 48, of no fixed abode, with two counts of rape and one count of murder.

He will appear at King’s Lynn Magistrates’ Court later this morning.

A police spokesman has also confirmed Ms Jurkiene’s next of kin have been made aware of her death.

The incident is not linked to the murder of Una Crown, a police spokesman added.

Mrs Crown, 86, was found dead in her bungalow in Magazine Lane, Wisbech, last Sunday morning. A post-mortem examination carried out this week revealed she had been stabbed in the neck and chest.

Her body was also set on fire following her death in an apparent attempt to hide her injuries and destroy evidence.
