A 22-YEAR-OLD man has admitted murdering two Co Down women in Turkey in August 2011.
Recep Cetin, who had been accused of stabbing to death his girlfriend's mother Marion Graham and her friend Kathy Dinsmore, admitted the killings in a Turkish court on Wednesday.
Ms Graham, a mother-of-five from Newry and Ms Dinsmore, from Warrenpoint, had been holidaying with Ms Graham's 15-year-old daughter Shannon in the popular tourist resort of Kusadasi.
The bodies of the women, both aged 54, were found lying in a remote forest near the city of Izmir.
Cetin complained he was being treated like “a Christian, an atheist or communist” in the trial. “I am a Muslim,” he said.
