The husband of a mother of two found dead in Worthing on Friday morning (April, 13) has paid tribute to her.

Police said although formal identification is yet to take place, the woman found at an address in South Farm Road, along with the body of a man, is believed to be 35-year-old Maryna Kavaliauske.

Her husband of 15 years, Giedrius, said she was a wonderful mother to their two children, aged nine and 12, and said they were a very happy family.

The man also found dead is believed to be Viasia Chernoff, known sometimes as Alex Chernoff, who was 43.

Police said they were known to each other, but not related.

A post mortem carried out on Saturday (April, 14) established Maryna died from ligature compression to the neck, while Viasia died from hanging.

Detective Superintendent Adam Hibbert, of the Sussex and Surrey Major Crime Team, said:

“At the present time we are not looking for anyone else in connection with the investigation and our enquiries are continuing to establish the full circumstances of the deaths.

“I would discourage anyone from speculating as to what has happened, as we have a distraught family with two young children trying to come to terms with their loss and to start grieving.

“Our thoughts are with the families at this difficult time.”
