A woman who suffered serious head injuries when she was attacked at a house four months ago has died in hospital.

Jane Sherratt, 60, was receiving treatment after being injured in Avondale Road, Spondon, Derby, on 7 January.

Her 56-year-old husband, Paul Sherratt, was charged with attempted murder and is in custody awaiting trial.

The Crown Prosecution Service has been made aware of Mrs Sherratt's death.

Derbyshire police said the information had been passed on "so the charge [against Mr Sherratt] can be reassessed".
