An inquest review hearing into the death of the uncle of Lottery winner Michael Carroll has been held in Norwich.

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

An earlier inquest heard Mr Muncaster shot his wife Allison, 48, at their home before turning the gun on himself. The earlier inquest concluded Mrs Muncaster was unlawfully killed but adjourned the inquest into Mr Muncaster's death.

At today's review hearing, area coroner Yvonne Blake said a domestic homicide review was ongoing and the coroner was awaiting police information.

She said there would be a further review at Norfolk Coroner's Court on November 9. Mr Muncaster was the uncle of binman Michael Carroll who won £9.7million in the National Lottery in 2002, and who blew all of his winnings before taking a job in a biscuit factory.
