Detectives are still waiting to question the estranged husband of a Newport woman killed in a shooting over a month ago.

Caroline Parry, 46, was found lying in the street at Seabreeze Avenue in the city on 8 August.

Husband Christopher, 49, was found with gunshot wounds to his face, and a shotgun was found at the scene.

He remains in hospital with serious injuries and Gwent Police have yet to interview him about the death.

He is believed to remain in a stable condition.

Mrs Parry's funeral took place at St Stephen's Church in Newport at the beginning of the month.

It is understood she had moved to Newport from her home in Croesyceiliog, Cwmbran.

Earlier this month, Gwent Coroner's Court heard how Mrs Parry was found lying dead with gunshot wounds to her back.

Coroner David Bowen adjourned his investigation into Mrs Parry's death for three months while detectives continue their work.

In the days after the shooting, police recovered three guns legally held by Mr Parry from a house in Cwmbran.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) is looking at the role of Gwent Police in the months before the shooting.

The police watchdog confirmed it was investigating if police had linked three call-outs to the couple between May and July.

IPCC commissioner Tom Davies said the investigation would also establish how the incidents were risk assessed and how Gwent Police officers dealt with them.
