Daughter begs dad not to kill himself after he suffocated terminally ill wife
Harrowing footage of a daughter begging her father not to take his own life after he suffocated her terminally-ill mother has been played in court.
Lesley Hunter tells her dad David Hunter, 75, ‘you can’t leave me, I’m your girl’ in a heartbreaking call.
British pensioner Hunter is accused of the pre-meditated murder of his wife Janice, 74, at their retirement villa in Cyprus.
He has admitted smothering his partner of 56 years, but says she had been pleading with him to end her life for weeks as she suffered from terminal leukaemia.
After Janice’s death on December 18, 2021, Hunter called his brother William to confess and to tell him he was going to kill himself.
William alerted police and officers rushed to Lesley’s home in Norfolk and told her to call her dad, MailOnline reports.
His daughter tells him: ‘Daddy remember how you walked me down the aisle and you said I was beautiful. I’m your girl. I’m your girl.
‘You can’t leave me. Daddy please, please daddy I beg you.’
Hunter is seen slumped in a chair, but it’s unclear if he had taken anything before the call.
