A British pensioner awaiting trial after the ‘mercy killing’ of his terminally ill wife has asked to be released from prison to visit her grave.

David Hunter, 75, faces life in prison if found guilty of the first degree murder of Janice, who had blood cancer.

He says they had a suicide pact but after David from Ashington in Northumberland smothered her he couldn’t take his own life.

Speaking from Nicosia Central Prison in Cyprus, David also revealed police did not let him see Janice’s funeral procession.

Former miners Barry Kent and Kevin Barnfather visited him there last week as his trial was adjourned to September.

Barry told the Mirror: “When we were talking about what he’s going to do when – not if – he comes out he said ‘I’m not going to do anything before I go to Janice and put flowers on her grave’.

“He tried to kill himself and he was obviously in incredibly bad shape.

“But he is adamant that he will fight for an acquittal. He knows he is not guilty of murder.”
