An inquest into Paul's death was opened, with Detective Chief Inspector Nicola Burnett of Humberside Police confirming the cause of death was a "single stab wound".

Detective Chief Inspector Burnett said: "At 7.05pm on December 28 the ambulance service received a call from a female saying she needed an ambulance.

"Crews turned up and CPR was commenced. The casualty had a single stab wound to his chest. He was transported to Hull Royal Infirmary but he was pronounced deceased later that evening.

"An investigation was launched and a number of inquiries carried out. That is still ongoing. There has been the recovery of digital devices, interviews with the suspect, other witnesses and house-to-house inquiries."

The defence team ahead of the court case over Paul's death have since requested a second post-mortem from senior coroner Professor Paul Marks.

The Hanson pair had been married for 34 years and are said to have been enjoying a Christmas dinner cooked by Mrs Hanson in a photo that showed them gathered with what appeared to be their family.

Teresa was granted bail, with conditions giving her a curfew of 11pm to 6am, while the 54-year-old also had to hand over her passport to police and move in with her parents.

Residents have since described Paul as a "doting dad and grandad" and that he and Teresa were a "lovely couple".

Professor Marks said that the four key questions, who died, where, when and how, would likely be addressed during the criminal trial, The Sun reported.
