It happened shortly after 7pm on Tuesday, November 3, and a 44-year-old woman was also injured in the incident.

One man has been arrested and charged in relation to the incident.

But the investigation is ongoing and police went out to Oakley Road on Tuesday evening, four weeks on from the fatal attack, to speak to people who may have been in the area on the night of the assault or have information to assist with their investigation.

DI Andy Rogers from Northants Police said: “Officers were on patrol in Oakley Road on Tuesday evening and spoke to nearly 20 people to see if they had been in the area on the night of the assault.

“We have been carrying out a thorough investigation since the incident happened and a man is due to appear in court next Monday.

“In the meantime, anyone who hasn’t already spoken to the police and may have witnessed the incident or have any information about it, is asked to call Corby CID on 101.”

Ashley Palmer, 28, from Corby, has been charged with GBH and is due to appear at Northampton Crown Court on Monday (December 7).
