The 63-year-old woman died at the scene of the attack at a home in Kirkdale, Liverpool, on Monday afternoon.

The woman has not yet been formally identified but her next of kin have been informed and a post-mortem will be carried out to establish the cause of death, the force said.

Detective Inspector Katie Coote said: "This is clearly a very distressing incident and our thoughts are with the family and friends of the lady who died.
