Death beats prison for singer as police close in
Amy Winehouse has made a prison suicide pact with her husband.
The Rehab singer, who is set to be questioned by police over husband Blake Fielder-Civil's charges of assault and allegedly perverting the course of justice, could face prison if she is linked to the conspiracy to clear Blake.
Amy has reportedly vowed to kill herself if she is parted from her husband by a lengthy jail sentence.
A source is quoted as saying: "Amy has had her problems but she is really teetering on the brink. She has hatched a suicide pact with Blake. If they are both handed lengthy jail sentences she is determined they will end it together rather than face five years apart.
"She can't live without Blake and her family are worried sick. This could finish her off. She isn't strong enough for prison life."
Amy must present herself for questioning this week. She will be finger-printed and asked to give DNA samples, as police reportedly believe she may be linked to crucial documents seized after Blake was arrested.
A police source said: "This is a very significant development in the investigation."
Barman James King was allegedly offered UKP200,000 to change his story, after Blake and his friend Michael Brown were charged with grievous bodily harm following a brawl which severely injured King.
Last month, police searched Amy's north London home and recovered mobile phone records, bank details and computer software. Last week, the offices of Amy's accountant were reportedly searched so officers could review all her transactions.
The source added: "As soon as the figure of UKP200,000 emerged, the finger of suspicion started to point in her direction. How could Blake, who is not wealthy, be expected to come up with that kind of money? Police want to see where Amy's money goes to. They will account for every penny."
If found guilty of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice Amy could face life in prison.
