A REVIEW hearing prior to an inquest into the death of a solicitor who died from stab wounds to the chest while jogging took place today (Tuesday, July 15).

Father-of-two Peter Maine died while jogging in the Maiden Castle area of Durham City on September 1, last year.

Police initially launched a murder-style investigation, but at a review into Mr Maine’s inquest held in January, Detective Chief Inspector Steve Chapman said the wounds may have been self-inflicted.
