Detective Chief Inspector Nicola Burnett, of Humberside Police, said: ‘An investigation was launched and a number of inquiries carried out. That is still ongoing.
‘There has been the recovery of digital devices, interviews with the suspect, other witnesses and house-to-house inquiries.’
Senior coroner Professor Paul Marks said he could not yet release Mr Hanson’s body as the defence team had requested a second post-mortem on Monday, January 23.
Mrs Hanson was seen on January 3 in a secure dock at Hull Crown Court – after she had denied a charge of murder.
The grandmother was granted bail and must stay with her parents in Rawcliffe Bridge, near Goole.
Neighbours allegedly described the pair, who had been married for 34 years, as a ‘lovely couple’
She is now on an electronically monitored curfew set between 11pm and 6am and has had to surrender her passport to the police.
A provisional date for a five-day trial has been set for June 12.
The pair, who had been married for 34 years, had allegedly been enjoying a Christmas dinner cooked by Mrs Hanson during the time of the incident.
Neighbours described Mr Hanson as a ‘doting dad and grandad’ who would always stop for a chat, The Sun reported.
Others described the duo as a ‘lovely couple’.
Concluding the inquest, Professor Marks suggested it would be unnecessary to complete the inquest as the four questions a coroner needs to answer – namely who died, where, when and how – would likely be addressed during the criminal trial.
