Natasha Marie Harris, 30, died on February 25, 2010 in Invercargill on New Zealand’s south island.
Her partner Christopher Hodgkinson claimed it was a result of drinking too much Coca-Cola.

On Thursday he told the inquest Natasha had been unwell leading up to her death and had no energy, but the idea Coca-Cola caused the problem had never crossed their minds.

Mr Hodgkinson told the court that she had been unwell up to a year before her death, including vomiting six times a week, but they believed it was caused by the stress of looking after her eight children and gynaecological problems.

“She drank at least 10 litres a day,” he said. “The first thing she would do in the morning was have a drink of Coke and the last thing she would do in the day was have a drink of Coke by her bed.’’
