Woman, 21, arrested as part of double murder investigation in Coventry



A 21-year-old woman has been arrested on suspicion of assisting a man believed to have been involved in a double murder.

Detectives arrested the woman on Tuesday morning at an address in the Tile Hill area of Coventry, police said.

She has been questioned in connection with the murder of 28-year-old Daniel Shaw and the disappearance of Jonny Robbins, 33, who is thought to have been kidnapped and killed.

Police said the woman was ordered to surrender her passport and has been bailed until further questioning next month.

Issuing a further appeal for information, Detective Chief Inspector Chris Mallett said: “We have made significant progress with this complex investigation.

“I have a dedicated team of detectives working on this investigation but we need the community of Coventry to stand up to those causing fear and intimidation where you live and stop this from happening again.”

He added that two innocent men had lost their lives “in the most horrific circumstances” and that detectives were fighting to get justice.

Mr Shaw was found dead with gunshot injuries to his chest on 25 March, four days after Mr Robbins went missing in the same area.

Police believe he was kidnapped and taken to Mr Shaw’s home, where he was tortured and killed, but his body has not been found.

Two men, aged 22 and 47, were previously arrested on suspicion of Mr Shaw’s murder and have been released pending further investigation.
