Angela Best inquest: Victim might have been saved if relationship with killer was known, coroner finds

Angela Best was 51 when she was murdered in her north London home in 2016.

An inquest has found that her life might have been saved if mental health workers had known that she was in a relationship with a man who had killed twice before.

Her attacker Theodore Johnson failed to tell supervising doctors about the 20-year relationship. Johnson then murdered her after she left him for another man.
