Stratford Editorial 17th Feb, 2016 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

AN INQUEST into the death of Bethany Hill is set to open on Friday.

A murder investigation was launched after the body of the 20 year-old from Stratford was discovered with neck wounds at a flat in Hertford Road on Wednesday February 3.

Two town residents – 22 year-old Kayleigh Woods and 20 year-old Jack Williams – have been charged with murder. They have both appeared in court and have been remanded in custody to re-appear in court on April 26. A trial is expected to take place in August.

Due to the criminal case, the coroner at Leamington Justice Centre is expected to adjourn the inquest.

No members of Bethany’s family or the police are attending the inquest.
