In quaint, picturesque Plympton, Devon, Audrey and Eric Hingston, 81 and 83, were enjoying the twilight of their happy marriage in their cosy home. This idyllic scene was destroyed when Eric was brutally stabbed to death during a supposed burglary in 2003.
His widow, Audrey made pained TV appeals to locate the killers, and bravely managed to provide police with a perfect description of the two culprits. As the bereaved extended family were torn between sorrow at the loss of Eric, and sympathy for Audrey, police launched an investigation costing £160,000 involving 481 hours of house inquiries.
They tracked down the two men Audrey had described, but there was a problem. They both had cast iron alibis. This prompted police to review the case and they came to a shocking realisation. At the crime scene, they found the supposedly stolen jewellery hidden in bin bags, and other signs of a set up. The town was thrown into turmoil when a new arrest was made, and this time it stuck; it was Audrey.
