Murder of two Newry women in Turkey has left their families in shock. Marion Graham and Kathy Dinsmore, mid 50s, were killed in the city of Izmir on Thursday.
Ms. Graham’s daughter and husband came back to their home town Northern Ireland on Monday and expect both bodies to arrive by the middle of this week.
Recep Cetin, Shannon’s boyfriend has been accused for the murder as her mother did not allow her 15-year-old daughter Shannon to marry a local Turkish waiter. The bodies were found in woods, and the place they were discovered was an hour drive from their holiday villa in Kusadasi.
Cetrin has appeared in the court and to his girl friend and to everyone he has declared to be of 17, which is thought to be a matter of suspicion. But, age would have a great impact on the amount of time he spends in jail.
BBC Northern Ireland's Chris Page said, "If he went to juvenile court the sentence he could have expected for a double murder would have been more than 40 years - probably less than 50”. But, if he is applicable for an adult court then the typical sentence is 36 years for a murder, so he could face 72 years imprisonment.
