Two men and two women, arrested by police hunting the killer of a 76-year-old pensioner in Northamptonshire, have been released on police bail.

Karoly Varga, known as Charlie, was found at his home in Cannon Street, Wellingborough, on Saturday.

Police raided a house in Senwick Road on Thursday and made the four arrests on suspicion of conspiracy to murder.

The two men, aged 30 and 31, and two women, aged 26 and 31, have been released to return at a later date.

Raised the alarm

A post-mortem examination showed Mr Varga had died from head injuries caused by a bladed instrument.

So far no murder weapon has been recovered.

Hungarian-born Mr Varga's body was found after relatives had raised the alarm.

Police are continuing to appeal for anyone who had seen Mr Varga before he was attacked to contact the police.

A Northamptonshire Police spokesman said the arrests were only one line of inquiry which police were looking at.
