Police have rearrested a man in connection with the murder of a woman in Gorleston earlier this month.
Linda Hood, 68, was found dead inside her home in Cherwell Way on Friday, June 11, after firefighters were called to a blaze.
A post mortem exam found she had died from compression to the neck, leading officers to launch a murder investigation.
A 58-year-old man was originally arrested on suspicion of murder and arson with intent to endanger life on June 17 but later released on police bail.
Police confirmed on Tuesday, June 29, that the same man had been rearrested in connection with Ms Hood's murder. He was taken to Wymondham Investigation Centre where he is being questioned.
A second man who was arrested on June 21 was later released under investigation and remains so.
Officers are conducting house-to-house enquiries, examinations of the scene, forensic enquiries and viewing CCTV footage in their bid to establish the circumstances of Ms Hood's death.
