A woman who was arrested by officers investigating the murder of Gary Suller has been released from custody.

The 26-year-old woman from Cwmbran, who was arrested on suspicion of murder, will face no further action.

The body of Mr Suller, 45, was found at a house in Harold Street in Pontnewydd, Cwmbran, on Tuesday.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission is investigating the way in which Gwent Police "handled a number of incidents prior to the death".

Gwent Police referred the case to the IPCC when it became clear that Mr Suller had contacted police previously.

IPCC commissioner Tom Davies said: "My condolences go to Mr Suller's family and friends at what must be a very difficult time.

"A decision has been taken that the IPCC will independently investigate how the police dealt with the various reports from Mr Suller in the months before his death."

A 37-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder the following day in Newport and remains in custody.

Mr Suller's family described him as a "beloved father, son and brother".

Anyone with any information that could help the investigation is asked to call Gwent Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
