A CORONER has said it could take weeks to establish how a couple came to be discovered dead in their Washington home.

Sunderland Coroner Derek Winter opened the inquest into the deaths of Ken and Edna Fisher yesterday, and adjourned it for six weeks for a formal cause of death to be given.

The bodies of the elderly pair were found by a carer inside their Biddick Villas bungalow in Columbia, last Friday.
