A police officer who strangled his long-term lover after she exposed their affair to his wife has been cleared of murder.
Timothy Brehmer, a constable with Dorset Police, killed nurse Claire Parry, 41, in a pub car park on 9 May.
The two had been having a secret relationship for more than 10 years, a trial at Salisbury Crown Court heard.
Brehmer, 41, of Hordle, Hampshire, had previously admitted manslaughter and said Mrs Parry’s death was an accident.
He will be sentenced at the same court later.
