Hazel Stewart’s Coleraine home has been put on the market in an attempt to settle legal action over benefits she inherited from her murdered husband.

The four-bedroom property, (pictured right) just outside Coleraine, has been listed with estate agents Daniel Henry, valued at £299,950.

Peter Wilson of Daniel Henry in Coleraine said: “There has been reasonable interest in the property so far.

“It is a good family home a few miles outside Coleraine in a good rural location.”

Police officer Trevor Buchanan was killed by Stewart and her 58-year-old lover Colin Howell, who also killed his wife Lesley, in May 1991 .

Initially, police believed Howell’s story that the deaths were a joint suicide, but Howell subsequently confessed to the murders in 2009 and implicated Stewart.

Stewart denied the charges but was convicted by a jury.

She is serving a minimum 18-year sentence for killing the victims, who were found together in a garage filled with exhaust fumes in Castlerock.

Howell was sentenced to 21 years.
