Have your say

A reclusive Forest Town couple were shot dead by their daughter and son-in-law, who buried their bodies in the back garden, stole from their bank accounts and conned relatives and neighbours into thinking they were still alive, a jury was told today (5th June).

Susan and Christopher Edwards ‘lied to everybody’ for 15 years to cover up the killings of Patricia and William Wycherley, and siphoned £245,000 into their own accounts, Nottingham Crown Court was told.

Mr Wycherley (85) and his 63-year-old wife were both shot twice with a .38 revolver over the May Bank Holiday weekend of 1998 at their Blenheim Close home, prosecutor Peter Joyce QC said as he opened the case against the Edwards.
