Widower calls for second inquest into wife's death

Mon, 17 Oct 2016


A local man whose wife died following a fall at a care home on the Island is calling for a new inquest into her death.

Neville Howard's wife passed away three years ago after falling while unsupervised at her care home, resulting in a severe bleed on the brain.

Her widower alleges an audio recording of the orginal inquest has been edited and that he was asked to sign a non-disclosure agreement and pay a fee in order to obtain the raw files.

He insists the story nurses gave him didn't match the statements made in court, and that a large bruise on his wife's abdomen remains unexplained.

Mr Howard also claims the nurses at the residential facility didn't call an ambulance for 40 minutes after her fall, while he was offended by comments made by the Coroner at the original hearing.

He told MTTV he wants a new inquest so he can know the truth about his wife's death [play audio].
