The next door neighbour of a mother suspected of killing her two young children before taking her life said she regularly heard arguments from their home.

The bodies of the 33-year-old woman, who has been named locally as Jeyavani Vageswaran, and her sons aged seven months and five, were found at their maisonette in Woodgrange Close yesterday evening.

Mrs Vageswaran lived at the home with her children and her husband Sakthivel an accountant.

Tashma Brown told the Times said she regularly overheard the couple rowing and once alerted police out of concern.

The mother-of-two said: “They were always arguing and shouting.”

Adding that Mrs Vageswaran was a recluse, she said: “She is a not person you see often.

“You only see her when she is coming out with the kids.”

Jay Moises, 28, another neighbour, regularly walked her children to school with Ms Vageswaran and her son, who was a pupil at nearby Mount Stewart Primary School in Carlisle Gardens.

She said: “As soon as he (a neighbour) said there has been a murder I started shaking and I text my partner and said come home because I was worried.”

Cllr Reg Colwill, Conservative councillfor for the Kenton ward, said he was saddened and shocked by the incident.

He said: It’s sad especially when children are involved.

“I think they (residents) would be shocked because we don’t get this kind of incident that much at this end of the borough.

Detectives are not looking for anyone else in connection with the three deaths.

A post-mortem examination to determine Mrs Vageswaran’s cause of death was due to be carried out today.

A post-mortem for the two boys will carried out in due course.

The Met’s Homicide and Major Crime Command are investigating the deaths.
