Police have charged a woman with the murder of a 57-year-old man in the town.

Police were called to a property in Burdock Close at around 11.50pm Saturday 16th March, following reports of concerns for a person's safety.

When they arrived they found the victim, who they have named provisionally as Kumarathas Rajasingam, with serious stab wounds to his head and chest. 

He was taken to Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital for treatment, but died the following morning from multiple organ failure arising from the stab wounds, a Home Office post-mortem found.

54-year-old Jeyamalar Kumarathas was arrested in connection with the incident on Saturday, and has now being charged with murder.

She remains in custody and is due to appear at Norwich Magistrates Court tomorrow morning, Tuesday 19th March.

"We believe this to be an isolated incident; however we are still keen to speak to anyone with information regarding it to further assist our investigation.”
