British detectives investigating the poisoning of two people by the nerve agent Novichok in southwestern England said Friday that a small bottle found in the home of one of the victims tested positive for the deadly substance. Her partner, Charlie Rowley, initially was in critical condition, but has regained consciousness.
Dawn Sturgess, 44, from Durrington, died in hospital on Sunday evening after being exposed to the nerve agent the previous weekend.

Cops said a small bottle was recovered after searching the scene of Rowley's house in Amesbury.
'Following those tests, scientists have now confirmed to us that the substance contained within the bottle is Novichok.
