FACTFILE

 

31st January 2007, Sandra Weddell, aged 44, was found dead at the family home in Lancot Avenue, Dunstable, Bedfordshire,

The cause of death was believed to be strangulation by a cable tie, Weddell claims it was suicide.

 

15th July 2007 Sandra's husband, Metropolitan Police inspector Gary Weddell,  made a brief appearance in court, charged with the murder of his wife in Dunstable.

A CPS spokesman confirmed: "We vigorously opposed the applications for bail at every court hearing." Initial bail requests were turned down but Weddell was eventually freed by Judge John Bevan QC in September 2007. He was released on bail of 200,000.

Details revealed at an earlier court hearing claimed that Weddell had said that Sandra, a nurse, was having an affair and wanted a divorce. He feared he would lose custody of their three children and his home.

Mr Weddell, who has been a police officer for 25 years, appeared in the dock at Luton Crown Court  and spoke only to confirm his name.

13th January 2008, Gary Weddell's visited his 70--year-old mothert-in-law Traute Maxfield, and shot her dead. Part of his bail conditions was that he did not enter Bedfordshire, he clearly breached this.

Officers who went to inform Weddell's 70-year-old mother-in-law at her 1 million home in the village of Gustard Wood, near Wheathampstead, found her body. She had been shot dead with the same weapon Mr Weddell used to kill himself.

Gary Weddell's body was found at the Broomhills shooting club in Markyate, Bedfordshire.
