Housewife committed suicide after row with husband

A mother-of-two killed herself in a 'moment of madness' after she had a row with her husband about him and his friends watching an Anthony Joshua boxing match live on their family TV.

Former travel company boss Felicity Hyde, 38, had agreed to husband Chris inviting friends round on a Saturday night to watch the British boxer fight Ukranian Wladimir Klitschko for the heavyweight title.

But although mother-of-two Mrs Hyde went to bed after the fight started she later stormed downstairs and berated the group saying she was trying to sleep and they were 'disrespecting her home'.
