Ex-policeman in court over murder
A former police officer is to appear in court charged with the murder of his wife, who was stabbed to death in her hairdressing salon.
Ivan Esack, 38, of Rosewood Avenue, Ashford, is to appear at Canterbury Magistrates' Court to face the single charge in connection with the death of Natalie Esack.
The 33-year-old was found at her hairdressing business, Esack Hair and Beauty, in High Street, Ashford, Kent, on Monday morning.
A Kent Police spokeswoman said: "A post-mortem examination showed that Mrs Esack died of multiple stab wounds."
The suspect was employed by Kent Police until 2010 but more recently has worked as a football agent, according to his own website.
