The couple’s roommate made the tragic discovery – finding the Latvian couple’s two-year-old son asleep in the semi-detached home on Wednesday night.
The 47-year-old warehouse worker told The Daily Mail that dad Kiril had been complaining about being tired at his work as a Pizza Express chef.
He said: “I think it was maybe depression – he told me that Lana didn’t understand him.
“They had been a happy couple but there had been tension between them in recent weeks.”
He added: “Lana was upset because she said Kiril always thought he was in the right and she was always in the wrong. But I don’t know what could have triggered something like this to happen.”
