An inquest was adjourned this morning into the shocking death of the Norwich grandmother who was attacked in Tenerife.
Jennifer Mills-Westley, a former Norfolk County Council road safety officer, was decapitated in an attack at a shop in Los Cristianos on Friday, May 13.
This morning Norfolk coroner William Armstrong opened and adjourned the inquest into the 60-year-old’s death.
At the Assembly House in Norwich, Mr Armstrong said that Mrs Mills-Westley’s body had been returned to Norfolk.
He issued a cremation certificate and adjourned the inquest pending the outcome of criminal proceedings in Tenerife.
Mrs Mills-Westley, of Whitworth Court, Hellesdon, had retired from her job as a road safety officer with Norfolk County Council, and moved to Tenerife.
On Friday, May 13 she was viciously stabbed and beheaded in an attack at a shop in Los Cristianos.
Deyan Deyanov, 28, who was arrested on suspicion of the murder of the 60-year-old mother-of-two and grandmother-of-five, has appeared in court and last week was moved from a psychiatric unit to prison after attacking a nurse in his cell.
