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.

Newcastle-born Weddell was ordered to stay with his brother in Surrey but was arrested for breaching bail conditions when he was spotted acting suspiciously in a pub car park on the A5 near Kensworth. He appeared before magistrates but was again released on bail.
Mrs Maxfield's home, which overlooks Mid Herts golf course, is on the market with Savills estate agents for �1,300,000.
