Tragically, their two young sons – aged four and seven – were in the house at the time of the horror.

They are now being cared for by Jennifer’s sister at her home nearby.

The couple’s neighbour, 34, and his dad, 67, have been arrested on suspicion of murder and remain in custody.

Heartbroken friends have now paid tribute to garden centre worker Jennifer and Stephen – a computer teacher at a secondary school.

One pal said: “Make time for your friends. Make that visit to see family. You just never know what could happen tomorrow.”

While another wrote: “Absolutely unbelievable. Cherish your friends and family you really don’t know when it will be too late”.
