The heartbroken daughters of a much-loved woman who was killed by her husband at their home have told how she was “simply the best”.

Julie Connaughton was repeatedly struck to the head with a hammer by husband David Connaughton, 60, before he stabbed himself to death, a Chesterfield coroner’s court heard this month.

Her brave daughters Nicola and Emily Corless - from a previous relationship - have begun rebuilding their lives since the attack in August and have been comforted by an overwhelming number of tributes for their popular mum who lived on Walton Drive in Boythorpe, Chesterfield.
