Detectives hunting the killer of Lin and Megan Russell revealed yesterday that Lin was bound and gagged during the hammer attack and a shoelace tied round her six-year-old daughter's neck to make her comply with the killer's demands.

Lin (left), 44, and Megan were found bludgeoned to death on a footpath near their home in Chillenden, near Canterbury, Kent, on 9 July last year. The mother's elder daughter Josie, nine, survived the attack.
