Barclays executive arrested on suspicion of killing his wife

A Barclays executive has been arrested on suspicion of killing his wife, according to the Times.

David Pomphret, who was released on conditional bail last night, is an associate vice-president at Barclays. His wife, Ann Marie, was found dead in a stable in Burtonwood, Cheshire, on Friday. She was discovered with head injuries.

Ann Marie Pomphret has been described as a keen horsewoman. Cheshire police said that a police presence will remain in the area and investigators will continue with their enquiries.

Detective inspector Adam Waller said: ‘I’d like to reassure residents that we are working around the clock to investigate this tragic death and are following a number of enquires. I am leading a team of specialist investigators from the Major Investigation Team as well as many other officers and staff from across Cheshire.

‘Specially trained officers will continue to support the family at this difficult time. If you have any information that may help, no matter how small you think it is, please contact us.’

David Pomphret’s LinkedIn profile indicates that he joined Barclays earlier this year and works as a solution architect on the mobile payments arm.
