Teenager back in court over Newry double murder
Recep Cetin, the teenager accused of murdering two Newry women last August beside the Turkish city of Izmir, is due back in court next month. The court appearance will decide whether he should be tried as an adult or juvenile. If tried as an adult and subsequently found guilty, Recep could face a much longer prison sentence. The horrific murder of the two Newry women left the local community in shock. Marion Elizabeth Graham (54) and Kathy Dinsmore (54), were stabbed to death in a wooded area, which the two women and a 15 year old girl were visiting at the time.Media reports suggest that the Turkish boy stabbed the two ladies in a frenzied attack after the women disagreed with him about marriage plans. The Turkish media has also claimed that when confronted with the bloodied clothing Recep admitted taking the two women in his father’s car to a quiet woodland area where he stabbed them both to death.
Ms Graham’s former partner, Raymond McGuinness, their daughter Shannon and relatives of Ms Dinsmore are all expected to travel to Turkey for the hearing, which is scheduled to be held on 29th December 2012.
