MARITAL difficulties may hold the key to a murder-suicide tragedy which has left a couple dead.

A community is in shock after Robert Holden, 44, strangled his wife Nicola and then hanged himself at their bungalow on Low Lane in Torrisholme.

A friend described Mrs Holden, 40, as a “lovely, lovely person with a real heart of gold”.

Police are not looking for anyone else in connection with the Morecambe deaths but have offered no explanation for the tragedy, which has left the couple’s 16-year-old son without his mother and father.
