Pensioner set for second court appearance Pensioner set for second court appearance

A PENSIONER is set to make his second appearance in court on August 7 having been charged with the murder of his wife and daughter.

Peter Redfern, 70, from Wath, made his first appearance at Rotherham Magistrates’ Court last Wednesday after the bodies of 67-year-old Jean Redfern and her daughter Sarah, 33, were found at a bungalow on Sandygate.

Postmortem results have revealed that Jean died of asphyxiation and Sarah died from severe head injuries.

Neighbours said the family had lived in the bungalow for 30 years and were very quiet but always spoke. Another said Peter had recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer and had been acting strangely as a result of his treatment.

A relative said in a statement: "Jean was a much-loved sister and aunt. Sarah was a wonderful, kind and loving niece and cousin. We are at a loss to know why they died, but ask as a family that we are allowed to grieve and try to come to terms with what has happened."

What type of sick comment is that just shows how much nagging one can take does it matter he took a life of wife and daughter no one deserve to be murdered theres plenty of other options to take divorce or just leave the marital home change his number when he's left the home so there's no contact you are a very sick individual who can make a joke out of something that is so serious
