Luke Walker trial: couple were "100% in love"

The trial of a man from Brierley Hill who is accused of killing his girlfriend in Crete, has heard the pair were 'very much in love'.

Luke Walker, 25, denies murdering 20-year-old Chelsea Hyndman almost three years ago.

Miss Hyndman, of Castleford, West Yorkshire, died after she was taken to hospital with abdominal pains in May 2010.

A court on the holiday island has been hearing from Chelsea's friend, Lyndsay Williamson:

"They were a young couple, very much in love. They felt invincible and wanted to get married and have children.

"They were happy and 100% in love."

– Lyndsay Williamson
