A SOUTHAMPTON mum who was in a volatile relationship killed herself, an inquest heard.

Malgorzata Duchniewska was discovered by partner Marek Budzko, who had woken to find her cold next to him in their bed.

Southampton Coroner’s Court heard how the couple, who met on a Polish dating website three years previously, were known to police for domestic violence.

However, investigations found no evidence of any violence leading to the 44-year-old’s death and that the couple and a friend had spent the previous day together, drinking between them two or three bottles of strong vodka. She had also been Christmas shopping.

After hearing she had died from a fatal mix of alcohol and drugs, Southampton coroner Keith Wiseman said he was satisfied that Miss Duchniewska had taken her own life.
