Murder-suicide inquiry continues


PRISON officer Robert Holden strangled his wife Nicola and then hanged himself at their family home in Torrisholme, Morecambe.

The couple, who have a 16-year-old son, had returned from a holiday in Mexico just a day earlier.

Police said this week that the pair, of Low Lane, had been experiencing “marital difficulties” and are not looking for anyone else in connection with the tragedy, which happened last Friday morning.
