It is understood that Ms Karim had only returned home last week after burying her father in Pakistan.  The red-brick terraced property in Harehills now lies behind a police cordon as forensics experts work in the house.  Tributes have poured in for Ms Karim following her death, with neighbours describing her as a kind and caring mother.  One woman said: 'Honestly can't believe it she was a good woman and caring. She was an amazing mother. She was kindness.'

Another added: 'They were a delightful couple. We never had any trouble from them. I can't understand what has happened.'

A West Yorkshire Police spokesperson said: 'The death of a woman who was found at an address in Leeds this morning is being treated as a domestic-related murder.  Officers were called to the property in Hovingham Terrace, Harehills, at 5.29am on September 24 and the 39-year-old woman was pronounced dead at the scene by ambulance staff.  A 37-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder and is in custody.  'A scene is in place around the address in Hovingham Terrace and enquiries are ongoing by West Yorkshire Police Homicide and Major Enquiry Team.'
