Sacked Leicestershire policeman found dead with family

A former police inspector found fatally injured with his wife and six-year-old daughter had been sacked last week, it has been confirmed.

Toby Day, 37, was found in the house in Melton Mowbray on Thursday after a 15-year-old-girl, believed to be another daughter, raised the alarm.

Police said they had begun a murder inquiry but were not looking for anyone else in connection with the case.

Mr Day was dismissed after a misconduct hearing on 1 December.

Anthony Bartram reports from Melton Mowbray.
