A 25-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of the murder of a heavily pregnant woman whose baby also later died.

Kelly Mary Fauvrelle, 26, was attacked in Thornton Heath, Croydon, south London, last month.

Ms Fauvrelle, who was eight months pregnant, was found by police and paramedics with stab wounds at 3.30am on Saturday 29 June at an address in Raymead Avenue.

She died at the scene, but ambulance staff were able to deliver her baby boy.

The child, who family members named Riley, was in a critical condition before he died on Wednesday 3 July.

A statement from Scotland Yard said: “On Thursday July 11, detectives investigating the murder of Kelly Mary Fauvrelle and her baby son, Riley, arrested a 25-year-old male on suspicion of murder.

“The male has been taken to a central London police station where he remains at this time. Enquiries continue.”
