Woman, 31, stabbed to death had recently split from her husband say neighbours as police wait to speak to man, 38, found with serious injuries at house where her body was discovered

  • Marta Chmielecka, 31, was discovered inside estranged husband Piotr’s home
  • Police had forced themselves into the £130,000 property where they found her
  • They also discovered a badly injured man, 38, they are now treating as suspect


A woman found dead alongside a seriously injured man was discovered in the home of her recently-estranged husband.

Neighbours say police located  Marta Chmielecka, 31, inside a guest house in Kettering, Northamptonshire, where husband Piotr Omka was living.

The pair are said to have recently rekindled their relationship and he was seen as recently as Sunday buying beer.

Police had forced themselves into Mr Omka’s room in the £130,000 property where they found Ms Chmielecka’s body and a badly-injured man, 38.

They had been called to the address after reports of concern for a person’s welfare. 

He was taken to hospital, where he is in a serious but stable condition, and Northamptonshire Police say they are treating him as a suspect.

Shopkeeper Ganjo Rasull, of the nearby Raja Supermarket, told MailOnline: ‘I have known Piotr for four or five years, he used to visit my other shop down the round. He was a beer drinker.

‘Piotr was the husband of Marta. Totally normal person. Marta would never visit the shop, but I know she was visiting the house in Wood Street often.

‘It was a shared house. Piotr had a room in the house. Piotr and Marta were divorced, but recently started seeing each other again.

‘On the weekend, when they were drinking, she kept going back to the house.

‘The police have taken a car a way. Once they broke in his room, that’s where they found the woman deceased.

‘Piotr visited the shop on Sunday evening to buy some beers – I think whatever happened on Tuesday. ‘        

Police have zeroed in on a 30 minute night time slot some four days before the two were found and believe it could be key to the investigation.

They want anyone who was in Wood Street between 10.30pm and 11pm on Friday, October 15, to come forward.

Detective Inspector Pete Long from the Major Crime Team, said: ‘Our enquiries continue to progress quickly and we have been speaking to a lot of people and gathering a lot of evidence to piece together Marta’s final movements and the circumstances surrounding her death.

‘Specially trained officers continue to support her family and I want to reassure them that a large team of detectives are working on this case and that we are doing everything in our power to get Marta justice.

‘I now want to appeal to anyone who was in Wood Street between 10.30pm and 11pm on Friday, October 15, to come forward, as they may have information that could help us.

‘Even if you think you saw nothing, if you were in the area between these times, please contact us.’

The police think that it was a contained incident and there is no wider risk to members of the public.

Extra foot patrols continue to take place in the local area to reassure the community.

Officers ask anyone who has any concerns, to feel free to approach one of their officers.

Baba Ali, 47, who runs the nearby Raja Superstore, told Northants Live the pair used to come into the shop often.

He said: ‘We are still waiting for the full story. He used to come to buy beer in the store.

‘I know her as well as she used to come in.’
