Ella, who also worked as a part-time eyelash technician, later used Jack’s phone to text another woman while posing as him to confirm whether her suspicions were true, Bradford Coroner’s court heard.

The court heard that Jack was initially arrested on suspicion of murdering the 27-year-old after the West Yorkshire Police opened a murder investigation.

But the heating engineer, who was 24 at the time of Ella’s death, denied having spoken to another woman and told the court, “I loved that girl dearly.”

He was able to give officers a detailed account of the events that night and senior investigating officer, Supt Mark Swift, ordered Jack’s release.

The officer said there was no evidence of a struggle and the criminal investigation was underway dropped.

During the hearing, assistant coroner Anglea Brocklehurst learned that the couple had a fiery relationship.

She was also told that Ella had tried to take her own life when she was in a previous relationship.

Mrs. Brocklehurst said that Ella’s death was tragic and that as a young girl she was fearless and outgoing and a protector of her older brother Ronnie, who had been bullied.

Mrs Brocklehurst: ‘She was in a relationship with an older man who was trying to control her.

“She found the strength to leave him, but she began to doubt her self-worth. She overdosed.

“She formed a relationship with Jack and her sensitive emotional triggers were fidelity and loyalty.

“She enjoyed decorating her new house, but she was upset that Jack regularly went out with his friends and left her behind.
