West Yorkshire Police said: "On Sunday, October 31, 2021, a body of a woman was discovered in a suitcase near to Aysgarth Avenue in Lightcliffe in Calderdale.

"The body was later identified as that of Dawn Walker. Her husband Thomas Nutt was arrested and charged with her murder."

Following the murder, the groom even called the police to let them know his wife had gone missing and played along in a charade for days on end before eventually turning himself in.

Dawn had previously been to the police over an assault she suffered at Nutt's hands but later tried to retract her statements, which Judge Rose told Nutt was "evidence of your control of a woman, even after you had used violence towards you and even after Kimberley Allcock warned her, a warning she tragically chose to ignore."
