A 27-year-old mother was found asphyxiated at her home in Deeside, an inquest has heard.
Police found Jade Marsh, also known as Jade Ward, dead on Thursday 26 August at the property on Chevrons Road, Shotton.
Speaking at the opening of the inquest, a Home Office pathologist gave the provisional cause of death as asphyxiation.
The inquest has been adjourned.
Her ex-husband, Russell Marsh, 29, has been charged with her murder. He has been remanded in custody and will appear at Mold Crown Court tomorrow.
Jade, who worked at the Co-op, was a mother to four children. Balloons were released in her memory on Saturday.
Jade's sister Taylor Wesley said hundreds of people turned up in memory of Jade: "She would have been so proud and it shows just how loved she was."
