A man has admitted murdering his estranged wife and her partner on New Year’s Day.
Helen Hancock, 39, and Martin Griffiths, 48, were found brutally stabbed to death at a house in Duffield, Derbyshire, in the early hours of 1 January.
Rhys Hancock, of Portland Street in Etwall, Derbyshire, pleaded guilty at Derby Crown Court to both murders.
The court heard Hancock called police at about 04:20 GMT to say he was at his former marital home and admitted murdering Ms Hancock and her lover Mr Griffiths.
Police officers found the bodies of PE teacher Ms Hancock and businessman Mr Griffiths, a businessman, in the house.
An inquest heard both had suffered multiple stab wounds and there was a blunt trauma injury to Ms Hancock’s right eye.
The 40 year-old is due to be sentenced shortly.
