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.”
