'Sex, religion, adultery, murder and cover-up'

A judge is to hear mitigation arguments ahead of the sentencing next week in the case of Hazel Stewart, the woman found guilty of killing her husband and her former lover's wife in 1991.

It had been thought to be a case of double suicide until two years ago when Stewart's ex-lover Colin Howell confessed to the murders.

Correspondent Mark Simpson and David Wilson, professor of criminology, analyse the case.
