The remains of single mother Victoria Couchman, were found by children playing in a wood in St Leonards-on-Sea, East Sussex, in 2008

Her father, Tony Couchman (46) was later charged with her murder and perverting the course of justice.

He bled to death after slashing his arm with a razor blade at Lewes prison on January 2, 2010. He had denied both charges.
