Jury conclude that Kellie Sutton was unlawfully killed in self inflicted death following domestic abuse

Kellie Sutton, a 30 year old mother of three, was discovered unconscious on 23 August 2017, apparently having hanged herself. She was pronounced dead in hospital three days later.

An inquest jury has now concluded that Kellie was unlawfully killed, in that the domestic abuse that she was subjected to by her partner caused her death. The jury also reached critical findings that failings of Hertfordshire Police officers also contributed to Kellie’s death.
