An inquest has opened into the deaths of a couple whose bodies were found with stab wounds in Bradford.

Margaride Rufino, 38, and Anthony Roberts, 37, were found dead at a house in Cross Road, Idle, on Sunday.

A post-mortem examination found Ms Rufino, known as Guida, died from multiple stab wounds. Mr Roberts died from a leg wound.

The inquest has been adjourned and a date is yet to be fixed, said Bradford Coroner's Court.

Detectives said previously they were treating the incident as a murder-suicide and were not looking for anyone else.
