AN ex-Lib Dem councillor who was allegedly murdered by her neighbour in a leafy suburb at the weekend has been pictured for the first time.
Marietta Louise Lotz, 64 who is known as Louise, suffered serious head injuries in Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire, on Saturday evening.
She was found collapsed at a home in Fordwich Road after police were called to a disturbance at the address.
Debby Foxwell, 40, who had allegedly “rowed” with the victim previously over the years, has been charged with her murder.
Foxwell, of Fordwich Road, appeared at Hatfield Remand Court on Monday and was remanded in custody to appear before St Albans Crown Court on Wednesday, Hertfordshire police said.
She is due to appear at Luton Crown Court on Wednesday, it has been reported.
Marietta was a former Liberal Democrats councillor for Welwyn Hatfield council.
A 36-year-old man, who is reportedly Foxwell’s boyfriend, was arrested on suspicion of murder but has since been released.
Detective Chief Inspector Jerome Kent said: “Our thoughts remain with Louise’s family and friends at what is a very upsetting time for them and we ask that their privacy is respected.
“I understand that news of this incident will be unsettling to the wider community but I would like to confirm that we are treating it as an isolated offence and we are not looking for anyone else in connection with the investigation.
“I also ask residents to refrain from speculating about the circumstances on social media, as this will not only cause distress to the victim’s family but could also impact the investigation and associated justice process.
“Lastly, I would like to thank those people who have already assisted us with our enquiries but if you believe you have information that could assist our investigation and have not yet spoken with us, then please get in touch as soon as possible.”
