Mr Ruse, 37, the owner of Ruse & Son butchers in Long Melford, was discovered on the ground beside the Parkway car park in Bury St Edmunds with severe injuries on the afternoon of November 13 last year. He was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later.

Inquiries led police to 39-year-old Mrs Ruse’s home in Park Terrace, Long Melford, where her body was discovered.

On December 16 last year, the inquest was opened at the IP City Centre in Ipswich. Assistant coroner Mr McCarthy adjourned the case until February 26, 2015 for mention. A Suffolk police spokesman said as investigations into their deaths were still ongoing, the case had been further adjourned and was expected to be heard at the end of March.
