A woman has been stabbed to death and her partner seriously injured in an attack just a day after the man's grandchild was fatally mauled by dogs.
Ms Larn and Mr Brightwell were attacked in their home
Debra Larn, 47, and John Brightwell, 50, were attacked at their Beaumont Leys home in Leicester on Sunday.
The day before, Mr Brightwell's five-month-old granddaughter was killed by two Rottweiler dogs.
A 26-year-old man will appear in court on Tuesday charged with murder and causing grievous bodily harm.
The death of baby Cadey-Lee Deacon on Sunday at The Rocket pub in Leicester is not being linked to the attack.
The two dogs, which lived at the pub, were put down after the attack.
In a statement issued through Leicestershire Constabulary, Cadey-Lee's mother, Amy Deacon and her partner, Lee Burchell, who managed the pub, said: "Words cannot express our devastation at what has happened. We just cannot believe that Cadey-Lee is gone.
Flowers have been left outside the pub where the baby died
"She was such a beautiful little girl. We loved her so much and we just can't accept that something like this could have happened. How do you come to terms with such a tragedy?"
The couple thanked the public for the outpouring of support and asked for "time to grieve for our little girl in peace".
Chief Superintendent Steve Pitts, of Leicestershire Constabulary, said Mr Buchell's mother Lesley was the licensee at the pub where the baby died.
"Amy and Lee were moving furniture out of the living quarters to new premises when tragedy struck on Saturday.
"It appears that a fire escape door was left mistakenly open and allowed the family's dogs, Bruno and Bess, access to the living quarters."
He said the dogs made their way to the bedroom in which baby Cadey-Lee was sleeping.
"By the time Amy, Lee and the relatives who were helping them move realised what had happened, the dogs had attacked."
