The pair had also pleaded guilty to obstructing the Coroner by burying the Wycherleys, as well as the theft of a credit balance.

At a hearing at Nottingham Crown Court on Tuesday, the pair were ordered to pay back as much as they could of their accumulated profits.

Following a subsequent financial investigation by Nottinghamshire Police the Edwards’ were found to have stolen £40,579.87 from the Wycherley’s two bank accounts, just days after the murder. They redirected benefit payments, as well as state pensions and private pensions, to a new account in Susan and Patricia’s names and continued to collect over the next 14 years.

Evidence was also obtained to show that credit cards and loan agreements had been taken out in the name of Patricia. They also made nearly £67,000 from the sale of the Wycherleys’ home in 2005.

On arrest Christopher had just £17.16 in his bank accounts. The joint account set up in the name of Susan and Patricia contained £8,797.62. The pair also had £2,939-worth of memorabilia, mostly relating to Frank Sinatra and Gary Cooper in their suitcases when they were arrested off a train from Lille in France.

They will be expected to pay the remaining £274,531.26 as and when they can.
