The inquests into the deaths of a father and his two sons from Hinckley have been opened and adjourned.
The bodies of 43-year-old David Stokes, and his sons five-year-old Matthew and his 11-year brother Adam, were found on Wednesday morning (2 November).
Our reporter Stacey Foster was in court:
More than £3000 has been raised in less than a week in memory of two boys found dead at a house in Hinckley earlier this week, along with their father.
Richard Spalding set up the fundraising web site page on behalf of his son, who was the best friend of Adam Stokes, the older of the two boys.
Police were called to a house in Hinckley on Tuesday evening after reports of a disturbance.
After several hours of negotiations they entered the house and found the bodies of Adam and Matthew Stokes along with their father David. A woman is in a stable condition in hospital.
It's thought the money will go towards a community memorial - possibly a playground, and to support the family.
