Husband and wife happily enjoying Christmas dinner… three days before she was charged with murder
Pictured: A couple are seen happily enjoying Christmas together at what their daughter calls ‘the best’ dinner, THREE days before the wife is arrested and accused of stabbing her husband
- On December 28, 54-year-old Paul Hanson was found dead by police
- Teresa Hanson, 54, was charged with the murder of her husband last week
- The Yorkshire couple had two children and had been married for 34 years
Teresa and Paul Hanson sat at the Christmas table with other family members and looked happy.
But three days after what her daughter described as “the best day”, Mr Hanson, 54, was found dying of a stab wound by police. His wife was later charged with murder.
Teresa Hanson yesterday celebrated her 54th birthday behind bars after being remanded in custody. The grandmother appeared before Hull Magistrates’ Court on Saturday charged with murdering her husband at their home in West Cowick, a village near Snaith, East Yorkshire.
She spoke only to confirm her name and date of birth – January 1, 1969. Wearing a gray tracksuit, she addressed the court in an almost whisper while family members sobbed from the public gallery.
When the couple’s daughter, Sherri Hanson, posted happy Christmas Day photos to Facebook, there was no hint of the tragedy that would follow three days later

The judges described the case as a “difficult situation for all involved” and said it must be referred to the Crown Court. Hanson will appear at Hull Crown Court tomorrow.
When the couple’s daughter, Sherri Hanson, posted happy Christmas Day photos to Facebook, there was no hint of the tragedy that would follow three days later.
The photos showed Hanson and her husband wearing festive hats and sitting at the dining table with other relatives. Sherri commented that they “had the best day with the family today.”
Her mother replied: “Was a fantastic day. Goes too fast x.’ Sherri then replied: “We had the best day! Thank you for the best Christmas dinner!’
But the happy family scene was forgotten when police were called to the home at 7:15 p.m. on December 28. Humberside Police said they had “received reports that a man had sustained a stab wound”.
Mr Hanson was taken to hospital but died shortly thereafter despite emergency services trying to save him.
The couple have two children and have been married for 34 years.
Mr Hanson is believed to have worked in construction while his wife was a hairdresser who ran a shop from home selling luxury home goods.
Police were called to the home at 7:15 p.m. on December 28
The tragedy has rocked the rural community. A villager said, “The husband seemed like a very nice guy. He would always say hello to you.
“Sometimes I would pass him on the street and see him driving to work in his van. I think they’ve been living here for a number of years.
“I couldn’t believe it when the police knocked on the door and said they were investigating – you don’t expect that at any time of year here let alone Christmas and they had the whole family around right now.”
