Millionaire John Paul McManus wants the inquest into his wife Emma McManus’ unnatural death at their palatial home in the Sandy Lane estate to be continued behind closed doors.

And his lawyer will be petitioning Coroner Magistrate Graveney Bannister to bar the media from reporting on it.

The Saturday Sun has learnt that the Coroner’s Court has received correspondence from attorney Maya Carrington, who held a watching brief on behalf of John Paul McManus during last month’s first date of hearing, and who is asking that all further proceedings be done “in camera” to protect the privacy of the couple’s three young children.

The inquest continues on February 26 when the autopsy and toxicology reports are scheduled to be read into evidence. (HLE)
