Nadia Tkachuk rented a room to suspect Arnis Zalkalns without knowing about his murderous past.

It wasn’t until Zalkalns’ roomate- an ex-policeman- revealed the truth to Nadia.

She told The Sunday People: “His friend said he killed his wife before coming to England. I was shaking. I was surprised.”

"He didn’t look like a killer. He looked like a good person.”

She added: “If I knew straight away I would ­definitely have ­refused for him to live under my roof.”

A shocked Nadia then confronted Zalkalns about his crime, to which he said: “It was an accident. My wife was beating our child.

"I tried to protect the child and accidentally I hit her and I killed her like that.”

Zalkalns is now the prime suspect in an investigation to the disappearance of 14-year-old school girl Alice Gross, who was last seen on August 28 walking along a London canal.

Zalkalns is seen cycling behind her just minutes later.

Nadia said: “I feel so sorry for Alice’s parents. I have two daughters myself so I could cry for Alice’s ­parents.

"It is a terrible for family if you lose someone close to your heart..”
