Family of dead Leicestershire policeman 'well known'

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.

Canon Lee Francis-Dehqani, vicar of All Saints Church in Oakham where the family worshipped, said the family were well known in the community.
