A husband killed witchcraft with his wife and feared before committing suicide after claiming to be a victim of a & # 39; zombie attack & # 39 ;, a judicial investigation.
The bodies of Lorraine and Jesus Matos Sanchez were discovered in their home in Leicestershire in November after neighbors heard the screams.
Jesus, 31, who believed his wife was having an affair and feared that his marriage would fall apart, strangled and stabbed the 27-year-old before he hung himself.
He left a handwritten note with the text: & # 39; She first tried to kill me in a crazy zombie attack and I acted in self-defense. & # 39;
In 2009 Mrs. Matos Sanchez, then 18, wore a balaclava when she stabbed her sleeping mother Sisbsisiwe Mbulawa five times with a kitchen knife.
But she was acquitted of attempted murder and convicted of the lesser accusation of illegal injuries after she had told the jurors that the ghost of her deceased grandmother had appeared at the end of her bed.

Mrs. Matos Sanchez's father died suddenly after collapsing in their home in Zimbabwe in 2000, so she and her mother moved to England in 2002.
During her trial in 2009, Mrs. Matos Sanchez claimed that her deceased grandmother had told her that her mother had killed her father and that she & # 39; honorable thing & # 39; should do and avenge his death.
Psychiatrists said she had no psychological problems and that the jury agreed that she knew what she was doing.
But the A Level student, who was born in Zimbabwe, was released after being sentenced to 12 months in prison.

During investigations into the death of Jesus and Lorraine yesterday, a coroner heard that there was no clear evidence of an insane fight or an earlier history of domestic violence between the couple.
The only visible injuries found on Mrs. Matos Sanchez, facing down on a bed, were a hand with a small hand and a broken acrylic fingernail.
Two unused knives were discovered by the police in the bedrooms at the front and rear.
Senior coroner Catherine Mason told Leicester Coroner & # 39; s Court: & # 39; Just because there was no evidence of an insane attack does not mean there was none. & # 39;
The couple's bodies, which belonged to the Seventh-day Adventist Church, were found last November 27.
Three days earlier, Mr Matos Sanchez had sent texts to his wife's colleagues, who are copying for her.
The guard, from the Caribbean, admitted in his farewell letter: & I cannot live with myself. I called her workplace and lied that she is not coming. I have to go now. & # 39;
He feared that his three-year-old wife was having an affair and that his marriage was falling apart, the study heard.
In his note, he accused an unnamed man of destroying & # 39; of their relationship. Mrs Matos Sanchez's mobile phone has never been analyzed by the police due to a six-month delay in devices waiting for forensic work in crime laboratories.
The couple's bodies, which belonged to the Seventh-day Adventist Church, were found on November 27 last year on November 27.
But DC Natasha Batstone, of Leicestershire police, said the man had signed a statement denying involvement.
She said: & # 39; There has been talk with that person and that person has been excluded. He has made a signed statement in which he denies any affair with Lorraine. There is no other evidence in the scene to suggest anything else.
& # 39; The only other thing we could have done is look at her phone, which we could not have done. & # 39;
DC Batstone said there was no clear motive for the tragedy or what caused it.
She added: & # 39; Some witnesses have emphasized that there had been problems in marriage and that they had slept apart.
& # 39; [Mrs. Matos Sanchez] worried about financial problems, but nothing more. & # 39; She had expressed some concern about her husband regarding his mental condition. & # 39;
The coroner Catherine Mason said there was insufficient evidence to support conclusions about illegal killings or legitimate self-defense.
With a narrative verdict in Mrs. Matos Sanchez's death, the coroner said: “She died as a result of the actions of a third party.
& # 39; It is not possible to say with certainty or probability why the actions were taken or what led to them. & # 39;
The coroner included a suicide sentence in Mr Matos Sanchez's separate investigation and added: "The police cannot say exactly why he took this action, except that he did it himself."
