Detectives investigating the death of Mapperley man Stephen Walsh have been granted more time to question a man arrested on suspicion of murder.
Police officers have now been granted another 36 hours to question the 21-year old man arrested yesterday.
Thirty-seven-year-old Stephen Walsh was found dead at his home in Blenheim Avenue, Mapperley, at 5.55am on Monday (30 July).
He had been assaulted by a man who turned up at his house the previous night after Mr Walsh left the scene of a road traffic collision in nearby Newstead Avenue, Mapperley.
Officers attended Nottingham Magistrates’ Court this morning to apply for the extension.
