An inquest has heard how police and paramedics were called to a supermarket in Skipton where a shop assistant lay dying of stab wounds.
The horror unfolded at the Aldi store on the outskirts of the town just a few days before Christmas.
The victim was thirty year old Jodie Willsher, the mother of a young girl.
Neville Hord, 44, has appeared in court accused of Mrs Willsher's murder and is due to appear again at Bradford Crown Court on January 26.
