A WOMAN was found dead by her husband at their home after consuming a deadly combination of prescription medicines, an inquest has heard.
Ikbal Church, 35, of Farley Lodge, Ruthin Close, Luton, was discovered by her husband Christopher slumped over a coffee table at their home on March 1 this year.
Mr Church, a mechanic, had fallen asleep in a chair at around 7.30pm and at the time his wife was sitting on the sofa.
When he woke he found she was not breathing. He tried to give her CPR and called an ambulance but she was confirmed dead at the scene shortly afterwards.
Mrs Church, an estate agent who went by the name of Natasha, had taken a bottle of Oramorph given to her husband on prescription after having already taken a depressant similar to morphine earlier that night.
Her cause of death was found to be drug intoxication. There was no evidence she had suffered any injury or that another person was involved in her death.
Coroner David Morris recorded a verdict of misadventure during a hearing at Dunstable Coroner’s Court on Tuesday as he was satisfied she did not intend to take her own life.
