Police name mother and teenage daughter among three dead in 'suspected murder-suicide' in Newry

POLICE have released the names of a mother and daughter who were found dead after a suspected murder-suicide in Newry, Co. Down yesterday.

The bodies of Giselle Marimom-Herrera, 37, and her 15-year-old daughter Allison were discovered at a flat in Glin Ree Court in the city at around 11am on Thursday morning.

The body of a 38-year-old man – who has not been named, but is believed to have originally been from Scotland – was also found at the property.

It is believed the trio died in a double murder-suicide.

Ms Marimon-Herrera was originally from Columbia and had lived in Northern Ireland for around four years.

In a statement today, Detective Superintendent Jason Murphy said post-mortem examinations were under way.
