Barry Morrow Charged With Southport Double Murder - 10th Dec 2011

A lodger has been charged with murdering his landlady and her mother at a house in Southport.

Barry Morrow, 51, is accused of killing Angela Holgate, 54, and 75-year-old Alice Huyton and is due to appear in court on Monday.

The bodies of Mrs Holgate and her mother were found by a relative at Mrs Holgate's home in Southport, near Merseyside, last Saturday.

Post-mortem examinations showed that both women died from asphyxiation.

Morrow was arrested in the UK on Thursday after a Europe-wide search was launched following a sighting in France.

A police spokesman said: "Merseyside Police have today charged Barry Morrow, 51, of Fairhaven Road, Southport, with the murders of Angela Holgate and Alice Huyton.

"He has been remanded in custody to appear at South Sefton Magistrates Court on Monday." Read More
