On the day the names of six men killed in Afghanistan were made public, another victim of the conflict was remembered in Exeter. Corporal Stephen Curley served with Taunton based 40 Commando. He died in 2010 while leading a patrol in Helmand Province.
Today an inquest into his death took place in Exeter. A verdict of 'unlawful killing' was returned by the coroner. Speaking after the verdict, his wife Kierian said she hoped other widows won't have to wait nearly two years to discover what happened to their husbands.
