A housewife committed suicide after a row with her husband about him watching an Anthony Joshua boxing match.
Felicity Hyde killed herself in a “moment of madness” after the row about her husband watching the bout live on the family TV, and inquest heard.
Former travel company boss, Felicity, had agreed with her husband, Chris, inviting friends round on a Saturday night to watch Joshua fight with Ukranian Wladimir Klitschko for the heavyweight title.
But although the mother-of-two went to bed after the fight started, she later stormed downstairs and berated the group saying she was trying to sleep and they were “disrespecting her home”.
The following day, she and Mr Hyde, a 46-year old recruitment consultant, had a “heated discussion” in which she exclaimed if they were to divorce she wanted a ‘’massive settlement”.
The 38-year-old hanged herself on the Bank Holiday Monday in the garage of their family home in Blackpool, Lancs, whilst Mr Hyde was taking their children to a local refuse tip to dump rubbish. .
An inquest heard Mrs Hyde had no history of mental illness or depression. But in 2013 she said she was going to kill herself and took an excessive amount of medication.
