Mother-of-two stabbed after 'heated row' in Harlesden

A mother-of-two was stabbed to death in a car following a "heated argument" in north-west London, police believe.

Amanda Farquharson's body was found with multiple stab wounds in a Toyota Yaris car on Minet Avenue, Harlesden, on Saturday evening.

Keith Van Cooten, 44, of Lewisham, fell to his death from Torridon House, Kilburn, that same night.

Police are linking the two deaths. It is believed Mr Van Cooten was the father of one of the woman's children.

'Tragic murder'

Police described the man suspected of attacking Ms Farquharson, 34, of Wembley, as about 6ft (1.82m) tall with a slim build and a goatee beard, wearing a dark hooded top.

A 53-year-old man was arrested in connection with the death but he was later released on bail.

Det Ch Insp Jackie Sebire said: "This is a tragic murder that has deprived two children of their mother, and a family of its daughter and we are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information about the murder to contact us."
