Murder suspect found dead in jail

Norwich Prison
Mariusz Lipinski was being held at Norwich Prison

A homeless man accused of murdering a woman believed to be his estranged wife has died at Norwich Prison hours after being remanded in custody.

Mariusz Lipinski, 38, was taken to the prison from Ipswich Magistrates' Court on Tuesday afternoon.

His body was found by prison officers at about midnight.

He was accused of killing Malgorzata Lipinska, known as Gosia, at her home in Duke Street, Ipswich, Suffolk, where her body was found last Friday.

The Ministry of Justice told the BBC News website it would not comment "at this stage".

Ms Lipinska was found in the communal stairwell of the block of flats where she lived and was pronounced dead at the scene.

A post-mortem examination established she had died from multiple injuries.
