A WOMAN from Chirk found dead in her bed took an overdose of sleeping tablets an inquest heard.

Louise Williams, 55, was discovered by her husband on January 11 this year at their home at The Nurseries.

David Williams said in a statement read out to the hearing held in Wrexham that his wife “never fully recovered from personal problems” that emerged in 2016.

But she had made plans to go on holiday in Tenerife the week after she died and Mr Williams said: “She had never talked about or threatened to take her own life. She was a brilliant mother who loved her sons and grandson.”

The inquest heard that Mrs Williams was suffering from depression.

North Wales East and Central Coroner John Gittins said a note was found that indicated Mrs Williams’ intentions.

A post-mortem revealed a high level of the sleeping tablet Zopiclone in the blood with the concentration greater than 10 when a level greater than 0.6 can be fatal.

The cause of death was stated as a combination of asphyxia and a drug overdose.

The coroner concluded that Mrs Williams had taken her own life and said: “This was a deliberate intention.”
