David Oakes, 50, was jailed last year after Chelmsford Crown Court heard he went to Christine Chambers’s house in Braintree, where he subjected her to “degrading assaults” before blasting her and their daughter Shania with a shotgun.

Today, the Ministry of Justice confirmed that Oakes had died from natural causes after being taken to hospital.
