Murder inquiry: Cause of death revealed
A WOMAN who died following an incident at a house in St Peter on Tuesday evening suffered a stab wound to the neck, the States police have revealed.
They also confirmed that officers have been granted an extra 24 hours to question a 40-year-old man arrested on suspicion of murder. The detention period is due to expire at 7.45pm on Friday.
Former Centenier and special-needs teacher Pamela Nisbet (68) was pronounced dead in hospital shortly after the emergency services, including armed officers, were called to the property on Les Grupieaux hill, near Wheatlands Golf Course.
In an update issued on Thursday afternoon, the States police confirmed that a Home Office pathologist has conducted a post-mortem examination on Mrs Nisbet's body and concluded that the cause of death was a stab wound to the neck.
They confirmed that the custody extension was granted after the force made an application in a closed court during a hearing attended by the suspect.
In a statement, they added: 'The St Peter property remains secured allowing forensic examinations and searches [are] to continue.
'Specially trained officers remain with family, ensuring that they are receiving the support that they require and are kept fully informed of the ongoing investigation.'
