Rugby star Rowan Baxter’s doomed wife planned new WILL days before she was burned alive with their kids

THE wife of killer rugby star Rowan Baxter was planning to write a new will just days before she was burned alive with their children.

Hannah Clarke suffered a decade-long abuse at the hands of evil husband Baxter before she was killed along with their three children on the school run.

Her heartbroken parents revealed Hannah, 31, feared Baxter would kill her just days before he torched their car with his family inside.

She died along with Laianah, six, and Aaliyah, four, and son Trey, three in (town), Australia.

Hannah's devastated mum Suzanne revealed in an emotional interview with 'A Current Affair' that she had even discussed writing a new will after fearing that her husband would kill her.

She said: ""She said to me only last week, "Mum should I do a will?

'"What happens to my babies if he kills me? Because he'll go to jail for murder, who gets my children?

"She said: 'I want you and dad to have them or Nat. I don't want his family to have them.'"

Father Lloyd said she was a fantastic mother who was devoted to her kids.

He said: "She did everything for those kids

To the end she fought to make sure if he survived he got punished for what he was doing to her babies. She was so brave."

It was revealed this week that the rugby star would punish and control his wife if she didn't have sex with him every day or wear 'appropriate' clothing.

Hannah's gym friend Manja Whaley said Baxter, 42, used emotionally abusive and controlling tactics and regularly threatened to punish his wife and children.

Speaking out for the first time on Thursday, she told The Today Show:"Emotional abuse, sexual abuse, financial abuse ... she had experienced all of those."

But because the former rugby player "didn't hit her" the mother-of-three was unaware she was in a domestic violence relationship.

Ms Clarke had suffered at the hands of her abusive husband for more than 10 years, before finally leaving him in November.

The couple had separated and were in the midst of custody arrangements.

Baxter died on the street after stabbing himself in the aftermath of the care fire.

Her devastated family are now planning to launch a charity in Hannah's name to help other victims of domestic violence.
