A WOMAN arrested on suspicion of murder after a man was found dead at his home has been released without charge.

Andrew Taylor, 41, of Osborn Road South, Fareham, was discovered dead in a house in Gordon Road, Fareham, at 11.30am on Sunday.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

A Hampshire police spokeswoman said no crime has been committed and the criminal investigation into Mr Taylor’s death has now closed.

However the cause of Mr Taylor’s death has not yet been revealed by police.

The spokeswoman said: ‘The results of the Home Office post mortem examination and an extensive investigation have established that no criminal offences have been committed.

‘A file has been prepared and sent to HM Coroner and an inquest will open in due course.’

The 41-year-old woman was arrested on Sunday and Portsmouth magistrates yesterday granted an extension for her to be held in custody until 11.15pm today.

However she has now been released and will face no further action.
