A man has been charged with the murder of his wife and 12-year-old daughter, who were found dead at their home in Suffolk.
The bodies of Jillu Nash, 43, and Louise Nash were discovered at a property in Great Waldingfield, Sudbury, on September 8.
A 46-year-old man was detained by officers at the scene and taken to hospital for treatment for serious injuries, where he remained in custody. Suffolk Police said he was transferred to Martlesham Police Investigation Center for questioning on Saturday night.
In an update on Sunday, the force said Peter Nash, from Great Waldingfield, had been charged with two counts of murder and is due to appear at Ipswich Magistrates’ Court on Monday.
An inquest into the deaths, which opened on October 7, heard that the property was the home address of Jillu Nash and Peter Nash, who were husband and wife and lived at the property “with their 12-year-old daughter Louise, who had severe learning difficulties”.
Police said a Home Office autopsy concluded Jillu Nash’s cause of death was pressure to the neck and her daughter died from a stab wound to the stomach.
