An inquest into the death of a man who shot himself and his wife has been further delayed.

Stephen Muncaster, 47, was found dead in his driveway at Stow Road, Magdalen, near King’s Lynn, on July 12, 2016.

He had been found by police with a shotgun beside him, which he had used to kill his wife Allison, 48, in their home before turning it on himself.

An inquest into Mrs Muncaster’s death in January 5, 2017, recorded a conclusion of unlawful killing.

Mr Muncaster was the uncle of Michael Carroll, who hit the headlines in 2002 when he won £9.7m in the National Lottery. The former binman blew all of his winnings before taking a job in a biscuit factory.

In an inquest review in King’s Lynn this morning, senior coroner Jacqueline Lake adjourned the inquest for a further review on Friday, May 25.
