THE home where a 70-year-old woman was murdered by her son-in-law, nearly a year after he killed her daughter, has gone on the market.
Traute Maxfield was shot dead on January 12 last year in her home in The Slype, Gustard Wood, by police inspector Gary Weddell who went on to kill himself later that day.
His body was found eight miles away at the Broomhills Shooting Club near Markyate.
Weddell was controversially granted bail while standing accused of murdering his wife Sandra, who was found hanged in the garage of their Dunstable home around a year earlier.
