A man and a woman believed to be former partners have been found dead with stab wounds in a house in the West Midlands.

The man, aged 32, and the woman, aged 29, were pronounced dead at an address in Hollemeadow Avenue, Walsall.

Three girls, aged 11, eight and seven, were sleeping when police arrived in the early hours. They were not injured.

A man aged 19, who was also at the house, has been arrested on suspicion of murder. It is understood he was known to the two people who died.

Weapon recovered

The West Midlands force said police were called to the address at 03:50 BST following a call from the ambulance service reporting that the man and woman had suffered stab injuries.

A weapon has been recovered from inside the property, and a murder inquiry has been launched.

The force said while the precise cause of death was yet to be established, via a post-mortem examination, both were believed to have died as a result of knife injuries.

The girls are being cared for by friends. It is unclear if they were children of the two people who died, police said.
