Murder suspect inquest to resume

Victim Sylwia Sobczak
Sylwia Sobczak, 26, was Polish but had been living in London

An inquest will resume later into the death of a prisoner, on remand for murdering a Polish woman whose burnt body was found dumped in a suitcase.

Ziaul Haque, 27, of Drummond Street, Camden Town, London, was found hanged at Winchester Prison on 28 July, 2008.

He had been charged with the murder of Sylwia Sobczak, 26, whose remains were found in the village of Dummer, near Basingstoke, Hampshire, on 8 May, 2008.

A coroner ruled last October that Ms Sobczak was "unlawfully killed".

Ms Sobczak, who lived in Mafeking Road, Tottenham, north London, was found in the case by a dog walker on a bridlepath in the wealthy village.

Police were initially unable to identify her body and made a nationwide appeal.

The Ministry of Justice began an investigation into Mr Haque's death at the time through the Prisons and Probation Ombudsman.
