Following today's trial verdict, the family of Emma Wolfenden have paid tribute to her, describing her “kind and loving” character.
Emma’s older brother Charles said: “Emma spent most of her life in Rutland and touched a lot of lives during her life. The attendance at her funeral and the tributes and messages we received following her death showed this. It was very humbling and a testament to how loved she was.

“Emma was a kind and loving person. During her life, she worked as a carer for disadvantaged children for many years and also worked with people battling substance abuse. She was also due to start a qualification in social care.
“Emma also had a great sense of humour and would light up any room she walked into. She loved listening to music, played the oboe and also enjoyed horse riding.
“After being discharged from hospital in April, Emma had been determined to keep moving forward with her life and to make a quick recovery. As a family, we were left devastated by her tragic death.
“Emma - you will forever be in our memories. We will never forget you and the happiness and joy you brought not only to our lives but to the lives of many others too.”
