The widow of the British soldier killed in broad daylight on a London street spoke Friday about the future she’d planned with her husband.

Rebecca Rigby told the press she never imagined her husband would be in danger at home.

Family members said he died “in the most horrific way possible.”

Rigby was the father of a two-year-old.

The British soldier was off duty Wednesday when police say two men used knives and meat cleavers to kill him in front of horrified bystanders.

The suspects are in custody, being treated in a London hospital for gunshot wounds.

Meanwhile, the two women who were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy have been released without being charged.
