A heartbreaking picture of a couple murdered in an alleged parking row shows the pair with beaming smiles on their wedding day.
Jennifer Chapple, 33, and her husband Stephen, 36, were murdered in Norton Fitzwarren, Somerset following an alleged feud over parking with neighbours.
The picture shows the happy couple walking down the street on the day of their nuptials.
A video emerged of Jennifer engaged in a doorstep argument just weeks before her death.
The grainy footage, which she sent to a friend, shows her being confronted by a man, who accuses her of: "F***ing gobbing off.”
He unleashes a tirade of expletives before she goes into the house and he walks away, still swearing.
Jennifer and her husband Stephen were found dead in their home on Sunday evening.
Their children, boys aged six and five, were unharmed but “distressed” inside.
Police, who said the children had been asleep at the time of the attack, confirmed Jennifer had died from stab wounds, while post mortem examinations were still being carried out on her husband.
Two men were arrested on suspicion of murder.
One, 34, was questioned on Monday evening after magistrates granted an extension to the custody time limit.
A man of 67 was also arrested on Sunday but released under investigation.
Avon and Somerset Police said the incident on the Dragon Rise estate would be referred to the policing watchdog due to “prior police contact with those involved”.
Chief Inspector Justin French said: “There have been previous incidents. There have been callouts in the past.”
Neighbours claimed police had been called over parking disputes. One resident said: “Police have been out there on at least three occasions because of the parking, it’s utterly ridiculous.”
Another resident, Melissa, said: “Everyone has an issue with parking around here. Some people have multiple cars there isn’t space for and it has caused a lot of upset.”
Flowers laid at the scene for the Chapples paid tribute to “genuinely lovely people." A resident named Barbara, 40, said: “Whenever I saw Jennifer she was ever so friendly and was always smiling.
“They will both be dearly missed.”
