A man has been charged with the murder of his wife after she was found stabbed to death at their home. Paula Leather was found seriously injured in the early hours of Monday morning at the house she shared with her partner on Tinling Close in Prescot.
Tributes to Paula were left outside her home as neighbours commented on how “polite” and “thoughtful” she was. A bouquet was also left at the police cordon with a heartbreaking note from a friend attached. It said: “I can’t believe I am saying goodbye to such a special person and a really great friend. You will be so truly missed by so many people. Forever in our hearts and thoughts Paula. Thinking of your family at such a sad time. All our love xxx.”
