Jeweller death suspects released
Five men arrested in connection with the shooting of a Nottingham jeweller have been released on police bail.

A spokeswoman for Nottinghamshire Police said the suspects were released on Thursday night and will return for further questioning in April.

Four of the men were arrested in connection with the murder of Marian Bates and a robbery at the Time Centre, in Arnold on 30 September 2003.

A fifth man was detained on suspicion of robbery and handling a stolen moped.

Marian Bates, 64, was shot dead in her store as she attempted to protect daughter, Xanthe, from armed raiders.

The grandmother was fatally wounded and both her husband Victor and daughter were badly injured.

Peter Charles Williams, 18, has already been charged with the murder of Mrs Bates and is due to appear before Nottingham Crown Court on 5 April.
