Former Leicestershire police officer killed himself and family

A former police inspector killed his wife, daughter and himself days after being sacked by the Leicestershire force, an inquest has ruled.

Toby Day, 37, stabbed Samantha, 38, and six-year-old Genevieve at their home in Melton Mowbray, in December 2011.

The inquest in Loughborough heard Mr Day had been sacked for misconduct.
