Police are investigating the death of a woman, whose body was found at a private residence on George Badger Street, Ta’ Giorni.

The 41-year-old St Julian's resident, Caroline Magri, was said to have been murdered with a knife. The woman's body was found on her bed. A police source said the woman was found with a slashed throat and multiple stab wounds and was found dead by a man she lived with. 

The woman is suspected to have died earlier today, however the exact time of death is unknown.

Neighbours claimed that the woman was the mother of seven children, and that they suspect she was a sex worker. Some complained that she had entertained visits by many men on various occasions in the past two years since she moved into the street.

Eyewitnesses told MaltaToday the woman’s anguished daughter was seen emerging from the house, after the unknown assailant left the building.

Magistrate Consuelo Herrera is inquiring magistrate.

Magri was accused back in August of breaching several court sentences after she was hauled to court together with a Togolese national.

Together with Djibirl Ganiou, of Togo, she was accused of grievous bodily harm and assault on two men, Mamadou Diallo from Guinea and Mohammed Jallow, who lived in a Floriana apartment.

Magri claimed to have tried to separate them, but had been drawn into the scrap, with the result that the two fighting flatmates, Mamadou Diallo from Gunieau and Mohammed Jallow, suffered injuries to the face and eyes. Magri had been released on bail.
