An inquest into the death of a man found dead in his driveway will be held next month.

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

The 47-year-old was found by police with a shotgun beside him, which he had used to kill his wife Allison, 48.

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

In an inquest review in King's Lynn coroner's court this morning, senior coroner Jacqueline Lake said the inquest was ready to be heard and will take place at Norfolk Coroner's Court on Friday, June 15.
