A COURT hearing into alleged child sex offences by a Wigan OAP was halted after it was revealed his wife may have taken her own life.
Kam Tsoi , 66, is facing five charges involving four girls and was due to enter his pleas at Liverpool Crown Court yesterday.
But legal parties agreed the hearing be deferred until next Tuesday following the death of his wife Carol on Sunday, possibly by her own hand.
Police confirmed today that officers were called to Preston Road, Standish, to find a 64-year-old woman had died.
There are no suspicious circumstances and the coroner has been informed.
