‘A proper goodbye’: Emotional David Hunter visits wife’s grave for first time after prison release

A retired miner who killed his terminally ill wife to end her suffering has visited her grave for the first time since his release from prison in Cyprus.

British expat David Hunter was released from custody on Monday after a court sentenced him to two years in jail for the manslaughter of Janice.

Carrying a bouquet of pink, purple and yellow flowers, Mr Hunter immediately knelt down by the grave and appeared to be silently shaking.

The couple’s daughter, Lesley Cawthorne has said her father is to stay in Cyprus to be near Mrs Hunter’s grave and “say his goodbyes properly”.
