Her ex Daniel Boulton, 29, has now been charged with two counts of murder.

The suspect was arrested at a farm in nearby Hubbard’s Hill around 16 hours after the double killing when police put out an appeal.

He is also charged with stabbing an off-duty police officer at the farm before he was apprehended.


Bethany’s devastated parents are being comforted by loved ones at their homes in Chapel St Leonards.

The mum-of-two had given birth to a baby boy last year, who is now being cared for by relatives.

Her aunt wept as she told The Sun Online: “It’s just so awful. I can’t believe what’s happened.

“I’ve just come back from holiday and need to be with my sister. We’re all absolutely devastated.

“We can’t understand what has happened and why – we can’t comprehend it. It’s unbearable.”

Family friend Susan Sharpe said Bethany’s mum Caroline is in “bits”.

The 61-year-old added: “I’ve known Bethany since she was knee high and watched her grow up into a teenage girl and young woman. She was absolutely devoted to her son DJ and her baby boy.

“She was only young when she had her first child but she got on with it, she took to motherhood and was a very good and proud mum.

“Everyone knows Bethany and there is a huge outpouring of grief in the community.

“She was very quiet and kept herself to herself  but she was always coming to visit her gran next door with DJ. He was a lovely little lad, a cheeky chappy type.”
