A 32-year-old man arrested on suspicion of murdering an elderly woman who was battered to death with her rolling pin has been re-bailed.

Georgina Edmonds, 77, was tortured and killed at her home in Brambridge, near Eastleigh, Hampshire, in January 2008.

A 32-year-old man from Bishopstoke was arrested in June and released three days later.

Hampshire Constabulary said the man has been re-bailed until 11 January 2011 while inquiries continue.

River search

Police believe Mrs Edmonds was tortured for her bank card's pin number and her killer used her cash card after her death.

A man, wearing a fluorescent jacket, was seen using a cash machine at a Tesco Express in Twyford Road, only a few miles from Mrs Edmonds' home, that night.

Police said they had a DNA profile of the attacker and had carried out a search of a river near her home.

A £30,000 reward has been offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the killer.
