A 37-year-old man, Mitesh Patel, strangled his wife, Jessica Patel, to death, because he wanted to start a new life in Australia with his gay lover.
34-year-old Jessica Patel, who was a pharmacist was killed by her husband in May 2018 in a premeditated attack.
Before killing her, there had been evidence of physical abuse, as she once claimed that he hit her with a car.
Patel also moved Jessica to Middlesbrough from Halifax, West Yorkshire, which her family said was to isolate her.
His dirty plans were exposed by a health app on his iPhone that recorded his frantic act as he raced around the house after her death.
Mrs Patel sought help for anxiety but there was “no evidence” she was explicitly asked about domestic abuse, the panel said.
“Research suggests that women experiencing domestic abuse are more likely to experience a mental health problem, while women with mental health problems are more likely to be domestically abused,” the review said.
