Wife killer: Victim's family statement

We, as a family, are all totally devastated at the loss of such a truly wonderful daughter, grand-daughter, sister and friend.

Anyone that was lucky enough to come into Natalie’s life would tell you the same, that she was the most caring, selfless and genuine, happy outgoing person.

There will never be true justice for our loss. No one should have to bury their daughter or sister at such a young age, just because someone else had decided to take them away from everyone they love.

The most precious person has been ripped from our lives and we would ask that anyone who may be suffering like Natalie to please seek help before it is too late.
