Two Cumbria police officers are now under investigation in relation to their actions prior to the death of Melinda Korosi.
Ms Korosi was murdered in her Carlisle home by her ex-partner, Miklos Verebes, in September 2016. Verebes was jailed for life in March this year.
The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) investigation, which began soon after Ms Korosi’s death, is looking at the contact she had with Cumbria Constabulary, including any measures to safeguard her welfare and the actions taken following reports of rape and assault.
A spokesman for the IPCC said: “Based on the evidence collected so far the IPCC investigator has decided there is an indication of misconduct by a detective constable and a detective sergeant at the force. Both officers have been notified.
“All other officers involved in this case are being treated as witnesses at this time.”
Misconduct notices do not imply guilt but are to inform the officer/s that their conduct is under investigation and the level of severity.
