Information is still needed from the Crown Prosecution Service before a full inquest into the death of Kerri McAuley can go ahead.

The 32-year-old was brutally murdered by her former partner Joe Storey on January 8 this year at Southalls Way in Norwich.

Storey, 27, formerly of Murrells Court, Norwich, was sentenced to a minimum of 24 years in prison on June 19 after a jury found him guilty of murder.

An inquest review held at Norfolk Coroner’s Court on Tuesday, heard how the coroner’s office was still awaiting “clarification of matters” from the CPS.

Assistant coroner Johanna Thompson said there will be another pre-inquest review on August 7 this year.

Details of the attack on Ms McAuley were revealed as Storey went on trial for murder at Norwich Crown Court. It heard how Ms McAuley suffered 19 separate injuries to her face, including fractured eye sockets, cheek bones and jaw.
