Carter cried as the judge explained his reasoning Friday. He said Carter had a duty to call someone for help when she knew Roy was attempting suicide . Prosecutors focused on a series of text messages Carter sent Roy in the days before he killed himself .

'I would describe Chloe as a beautiful person, a wonderful daughter and sister, but most of all she adored her daughter in the short years she has given some wonderful memories. We are all deeply distressed by her death.'

Speaking at Bolton Coroner's Court Mr McCormick said he had a date with Chloe on the last day of her life and picked her up between 5.30pm and 6pm.

'We had a couple of drinks at the pub and then went to a bar at about 8.30pm and then went back to Chloe's house.

'We just drank and had a laugh and we joked. I went to sleep at about 11.30pm as I was training for a charity fight the next day. I woke up at about 5am to go to the toilet and I found her hanging from the stairs.'

Mr McCormick said it had been 'such a short window', but said that Chloe had seemed in a 'good mood'.

'She had spoke about her mental health issues but she said she was taking medication and she seemed fine - there's no way in the world I thought she would do it.'

Tests showed Chloe had 176 milligrams of alcohol per 100 millilitres of a blood. The alcohol limit in blood for driving is 80mg. There were also traces of cocaine in her system.

Det Insp Phillip Housley of Greater Manchester Police said it was unusual for someone to meet up with a first date and for one of the parties to be found deceased in the morning.

'We looked at Chloe's phone records and phone text messages and there was a message sent to someone called Adam at 3.03am but there is no suggestion that was responded to. There was no evidence to suggest foul play.'

Man who shot his girlfriend twice in the head and threw her body off a cliff, then claimed it was part of a ' suicide pact' is jailed for 52 years. A court initially ruled Bunner would be tried as a youthful offender, which would have meant he could have served a maximum of just three years behind bars.

Adam was found dead next to tracks near Wigan North Western railway station on June 28. It emerged he had been due to meet mental health experts after he was referred to them by his counsellor but he was never seen due to staff shortages.

Det Ch Insp Lee Owen of British Transport Police said: 'Adam was said to be deeply upset because of the death of his girlfriend and indicated he wanted to harm himself to his mum. He was upset and commented he wouldn't be able to carry her coffin and commented that he wanted to be with her.

'There is no indication of third party involvement or suspicious circumstances. We believe he made the decision to enter the track by himself. No note was found. With my person opinion, looking at the way he was struck by the train, I believe it was his intention to jump out of the way at the last minute.'

Recording a narrative conclusion on Chloe's death and a suicide verdict on Adam, Coroner Rachel Syed said: 'Adam had an on-off relationship Chloe and was due to go out for a meal with her, but they didn't end up going and very sadly the next day Adam was informed his partner had ended her own life.

'Quite understandably Adam was devastated by this news and struggled to come to terms with her death. I was told he accessed the counselling service and an assessment took place on 27 June 2019, and during this he disclosed to his counsellor he had suicidal thoughts.

'Sadly he died on the railway line having struggled to cope with the unexpected death of his partner.'

She added: 'At no point did Chloe disclose to her family, GP or mental health services that she intended to take her own life. 'There is no evidence she was researching how to take her own life and this came as a great shock to her family'.
