Braintree: Murdered mum's jewellery returned to family blood stained
9:00am Wednesday 17th October 2012 in News
Jewellery belonging to a murdered woman was returned to her distressed relatives 16 months after her death and still stained with blood.
Police have apologised to the family of Christine Chambers, who was shot dead alongside her two-year-old daughter Shania in Braintree in June last year by ex-partner David Oakes.
Essex Police said every effort had been made to clean the items before they were returned.
But her sister, Jeannette Chambers, is disgusted not enough care had been made to ensure all the items were clean.
