A DANCER died after being stabbed in the chest by her boyfriend who then killed himself in a murder-suicide, an inquest heard today.
Maddie Durdant- Hollamby, 22, was discovered dead in Kettering, Northants, following a report of concern for her welfare.
Her "sex addict" boyfriend Ben Green, 41, murdered her before taking his own life during the horror on August 27.
An inquest heard today how a provisional cause of death for Maddie was given as stab wounds to the chest.
Tragically, her dad Stephen had to identify her body, the brief hearing was told.
The inquest was adjourned until January 13. No date has been given for Green's inquest.
Dad-of-three Green is thought to have been dating marketing executive Maddie for around a year after meeting at work.
It is understood they had discussed splitting up before the horror.
Former friends have described Green as a "woman-hating sex addict" who bragged about bedding hundreds of lovers - many in their teens - in rented houses across the country.
One said Green targeted his conquests in a "chilling and calculated" manner - and had no respect for the women who he treated as his "property".
Police confirmed Maddie's death was being treated as murder and no-one else was being sought in connection with the killing.
