The local authority, Westminster Council, said Saldanha’s body was released to her family after Thursday’s hearing.

Saldanha, who was born in India, lived in Bristol in southwestern England with her husband and two teenage children. Her husband, Benedict Barboza, has said she will be laid to rest in Shirva, India.

The family was not in court. Lawmaker Keith Vaz, who has spoken on their behalf, said the nurse’s loved ones “need time to grieve.”

Vaz said a memorial Mass would be held Saturday at London’s Roman Catholic Westminster Cathedral.
