Christopher Edwards has told the jury at Nottingham Crown Court that when his wife, Susan Edwards, told him she had shot dead her mother, he wanted to go to the police but agreed not to when she became stressed.
Edwards claims she became agitated and that she said:
We can't. It's matricide. It's my mother. They won't understand.
