A WOMAN found dead in her home at Oakes was named today.
She was Debra Briggs. The 37-year-old mother of two worked as an auxiliary nurse at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary, a quarter of a mile from her home.
Her body was found by police when they were called to the house in Dean Street, off New Hey Road, at 12.50am on Saturday.
A 40-year-old local man has been charged with murder and was expected to appear at Huddersfield Magistrates' Court this morning.
Yesterday, floral tributes started appearing from friends and neighbours at her house.
Prayers were said during the Sunday morning service at Oakes Baptist Church.
Mrs Briggs lived with her husband Michael, 16-year-old daughter and 13-year-old son.
Audrey Dyson, 74, lives directly opposite Mrs Briggs's home.
Mrs Dyson has known the family for years.
"She was a beautiful girl and a beautiful woman," said Mrs Dyson.
"Everybody is absolutely shaken."
She added: "They were just an ordinary family and something has gone tragically wrong.
"That's a good family destroyed."
Mrs Briggs regularly walked past Eileen Oldfield's home in Wellington Street.
She said: "She used to go to work to the hospital and used to say hello. She was well-liked."
Police remained at the scene for much of Saturday, carrying out tests and searches inside the terraced house.
