Christopher Parry jailed over murder of Caroline Parry

A man who murdered his wife by shooting her in the back after she left him has been jailed for a minimum of 26 years.

Christopher Parry, 50, shot mother-of-two Caroline Parry, 49, at close range near her home in Newport last August before turning the gun on himself.

Parry, from Cwmbran, described as a "controlling and dominant" individual, was found guilty of murder at Newport Crown Court on Wednesday.

He had denied murder saying he only meant to shoot himself.
