Funeral for mum-of-two

Have your say

THE funeral has been held for a mum-of-two whose dead body was discovered in a suitcase in the home she shared with a man who taught at a Barnsley school.

Marie Stewart, aged 30, was discovered in her garage in Holmfirth in February after concerned relatives raised the alarm after not seeing her for a number of weeks.

She shared her home with her 28-year-old fiance Andrew Lindo, a music teacher at the Take 2 Theatre School in Birdwell, Barnsley.

He has been charged with murder and is remanded in custody pending his trial in August.

Around 500 mourners attended Marie’s funeral, many wearing her favourite colours of purple and lilac.

Her body was carried into church in Holmfirth in a purple wicker casket.
