Felixstowe stabbing case: Bundy family 'devastated'

The Crown Prosecution Service said Darryl Bundy was killed in self-defence

The family of a man who was stabbed to death in Suffolk after an alleged break-in say they are "devastated" no-one will face charges.

Darryl Bundy, 29, from Wirral, Merseyside, was fatally injured in Selvale Way, Felixstowe, in December.

The CPS said it had made a decision not to prosecute based on its policy of the use of force against intruders.

Veda Bundy, the dead man's mother, said: "I was absolutely devastated... I couldn't understand."

Darryl Bundy was stabbed at the house of 55-year-old John Treasure.

He and his son Kye Chilton, 24, from Ipswich, were arrested on suspicion of murder.

Mrs Bundy said: "Darryl would never rob anybody - he's not that type of person and this family's just fallen to pieces. It's really hard for us all."

Darryl's brother Steven Bundy, 24, from Felixstowe, was arrested on suspicion of burglary in December and released on police bail.

The CPS said he would not face charges because it was not in the public interest to proceed.

An inquest into the death of Darryl Bundy will be held at a later date.
