A woman stabbed to death at her home in Oldham was killed in the kitchen before her body was moved to her bedroom, an inquest heard.
Imogen Bohajczuk, 29, was found at a house on Ashton Road in Bardsley just after noon on March 4 when police were called to a report of concern for welfare.
She was pronounced dead at the scene.
An inquest opening at Rochdale coroners’ court on Thursday heard police discovered that ‘attempts had been made to clean the kitchen’ following Ms Bohajczuk’s death.
Ms Bohajczuk, who was born in Stockport and worked as a carer, was identified through dental records at Royal Oldham Hospital.
Police coroners officer Jane Scullion told the inquest: “Imogen was found on her bed with multiple stab wounds and blunt force trauma.
“It appears she was moved from where she had been killed in the kitchen as attempts had been made to clean the kitchen.
“Police enquiries are still ongoing.”
A post mortem report gave the cause of death as multiple stab wounds.
Ms Bohajczuk’s family paid tribute to her earlier this month.
In a statement they said: “The whole family is grieving the death of our beautiful daughter Immy whose life and future has been tragically snatched away from her.”
Daniel Grant Smith, 41, of Ashton Road, Oldham, has been charged with Ms Bohajczuk’s murder.
He will appear at Manchester Crown Court on October 25.
