A wife suspected of poisoning her cheating husband in an attempted ‘honour killing’ walked free from court with her smiling wheelchair-bound partner after he claimed he did it himself.

Mussarat Khan, 55, was accused of slipping arsenic into the food or drink of 50 year-old Tariq Khan for shaming the family by having an affair.

Mr Khan spent several weeks in a medically induced coma after being rushed to hospital with multiple organ failure and is now left with limited use of arms and legs.

Police charged the wife with attempted murder after a bottle of poison was found in the kitchen cupboard of the family home in Manor Park, east London.
