Police investigating the murder of a 92-year-old woman have said it is a strong line of inquiry that whoever entered her home may have had access.

Daisy Myring was discovered with a head injury at her home in Albion Road, Brownhills, Walsall, on Tuesday. She later died in hospital.

Police have been granted a custody extension by magistrates to continue questioning a woman, 36, and a man, 40.

The two are from Cannock and were arrested on suspicion of murder.

Police said they wanted to quash unfounded rumours that her house had been burgled.

Acting Det Ch Insp Wayne Jones said: "There has been concern within the community that Daisy's house had been subject to a burglary, we believe that was not the case and whoever entered the property had direct access or knew someone who did.

"We are still appealing for anyone who may have any information to come forward and contact us.

"Anyone who comes forward with information will be treated in the strictest confidence."

Ms Myring died in hospital after being taken there from her home.

Detectives said a post-mortem examination revealed she died as a result of blunt force trauma to the head and body.
