The married couple killed in a Somerset village had two cars but one parking space, neighbours have confirmed as police continue to question a suspect.
Stephen Chapple, 34, and his wife Jennifer, 33, were found dead at their home in Dragon Rise in Norton Fitzwarren, Somerset, on Sunday night while their two sons, aged five and six, slept upstairs.
A 34-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of murder and is being questioned by police after officers were granted a custody extension.
The incident is alleged to be linked to a parking dispute between neighbours in the Taylor Wimpey development, where neighbours complained that there simply “isn’t enough of it”.
“It’s horrendous. People park at bad angles, on corners, blocking driveways because the spaces are so limited,” resident Sharon Sedgbeer, 50, said.
