The family of a Devon woman who died in a shooting have spoken of the "devastating" loss of a "beautiful, loving and caring person".

Jennie Leeman, a 44-year-old mother of four, died at the family farm at Parracombe, near Barnstaple on 18 September.

Her husband David, 59, is in custody accused of her murder.

Her family said in a statement that Mrs Leeman "would do anything for anyone and was extremely well thought of".

A family friend, who did not want to be named, said: "Jennie was one of the nicest people I have had the pleasure of knowing and always had a smile on her face.

"She will be sadly missed by everyone who has been lucky enough to have known her."

Mr Leeman is due to appear at Exeter Crown Court on 7 October.

Mrs Leeman, her husband and their children had lived on the farm at the edge of a heavily wooded valley for more than 10 years.

The couple ran the family companies, Leeman UK and Leeman Holdings UK.
