A MUM has spoken of her heartache after her daughter was found dead in a horrific “murder-suicide” just yards from her sleeping son.
Lana Nemceva, 33, and husband Kirils Nemcevs, 31, were found dead at their home in Burton, Staffs last week.

Police said Lana’s death is being treated as murder, while her husband’s is not being treated as suspicious.
Their two-year-old son is being cared for by family.
Today, Lana’s grieving mum, Liubov Zatsepina, thanked friends and family for their support as a fundraising campaign set up by pals passed its £10,000 goal.
She wrote on Facebook:“Thank you all very much for helping us and your support and understanding in this difficult moment for us.
“We are very grateful to everyone.
“I always believed, and believe, in good hearts and decency of people.
“Take care of yourself and your near and dear ones.”
Thank you all very much for helping us and your support and understanding in this difficult moment for us
Ms Zatsepina signed off the post: “With great respect to all, mama of Lana Nemceva”.
A police investigation remains ongoing into the tragic find at the semi-detached home in Henhurst Hill last Wednesday.

Stafordshire Police said they’re not looking for anyone else in connection with the deaths
Detective Chief Inspector Dan Ison, senior investigating officer, said: “We are treating the 33-year-old woman’s death as murder and the 31-year-old’s death as non-suspicious.
“No one is being sought in connection with the incident.”The results of the post-mortem are inconclusive and further tests are now required to establish causes of death for both.”
A report is being prepared for the coroner and will be submitted at the conclusion of the police investigation.
“I would like to take this opportunity to urge members of the public and community not to speculate on the circumstances and respect the families’ wishes of privacy to enable them to grieve at this sad time.”
Liubov Zatsepina’s message comes after heartbreaking photos showed the couple celebrating their son’s second birthday just last month.
Kiril is understood to have moved to the UK about six years ago, settling in Winchester.
He then met Lana, an optometrist, when he was visiting Latvia a few years ago, with the couple marrying in 2016.
It has been claimed Kiril had not showed up for his shift at Pizza Express on Wednesday.
