Police have confirmed they will reinvestigate the death of Ian Stewart's first wife Diane Stewart following his conviction for the murder of his fiancé Helen Bailey.

Mrs Stewart died in 2010, with an inquest finding that she had an epileptic fit in the garden.

Det Ch Insp Jerome Kent was quick to point out at St Albans Crown Court that there is currently 'no suggestion Diane Stewart died of anything other than natural causes', but admitted that the Helen Bailey murder trial potentially opens up new suspicion.
