House where police inspector murdered detective wife up for sale

The house where a police inspector murdered his detective wife before dumping her in a lake is up for sale.

Prospective buyers are warned that “there was a crime committed at this premises” – but the full macabre details are not revealed in the listing.

Martial arts expert Darren McKie strangled Leanne, 39, the mother of his three children, at their home just weeks after they moved in.

The couple had paid £435,000 for it and spent £70,000 on improvements.

They had a £300,000 mortgage, other debts of £115,000 plus several bank and credit card accounts in the red.

On the day she died Leanne found her husband had applied for £54,000 in loans using her salary and passport details without her knowledge.

She angrily messaged him: “You liar. Just got back a loan application with my passport and my name. WTF.”

He replied “I’m coming home”, left work and throttled her.

McKie hid Leanne’s body in the boot of her red Mini Countryman and threw her in a nearby lake.

He never told police in which room he murdered her at the four-bedroom house in Wilmslow, Cheshire.

It is now advertised for sale at £480,000 on the Rightmove site. Open-house viewings start tomorrow.

Besides a property description that mentions “no chain”, the listing says: “In September 2017 there was a crime committed at this premises. For further information please contact the local property expert.”

The Land Registry still lists the house under the couple’s names.

McKie, 43, was found guilty of murder by Chester crown court in March and jailed for life with a minimum of 19 years. He was sacked by Greater Manchester Police last month.
