POLICEMAN Timothy Brehmer has been found not guilty of murdering his lover by a jury.
Brehmer had admitted manslaughter in relation to the death of Claire Parry (41), at the Horns Inn pub in Parley, near Christchurch, on 9th May.
However, he denied murder.
His trial heard how the pair had met at the pub car part at her request just before 3pm on the day as she had become upset having discovered he had been having affairs with other women during their 10-year affair.
Both got into his car when an incident occurred which led to her death.
In his defence, Brehmer claimed her death inadvertently occurred while he was trying to get her out of his vehicle.
Judge Richard Jacobs said he will sentence Brehmer on the manslaughter charge at 2.30pm this afternoon.
