WATCH: Why police officer became murderer

A Greater Manchester police inspector has been found guilty of murdering his detective wife, and dumping her body in a lake near their home in Cheshire.

Chester Crown Court heard Darren McKie strangled wife Leanne, who served with the same force, when she found out he'd applied for a loan in her name.

He denied killing her until nine days into his trial when he admitted to the lesser crime of manslaughter.

Her parents say they've lost their beautiful daughter and their grandchildren their mummy.
