Bone tests have shown the man accused of murdering two Co Down women in Turkey last summer is 22-years-old, five years older than he claimed to be.

Shannon Graham, whose boyfriend Recep Cetin is accused of murdering her mother.

Recep Cetin previously told police he was 17-years-old, but court-ordered bone tests reveal the Turkish waiter

is 22.

Marion Graham and Kathy Dinsmore were stabbed to death around 60 miles away from their apartment in the resort of Kusadasi.

The test results mean Cetin, whose former girlfriend Shannon Graham is the daughter of one of the women the Turk is accused of murdering, will be tried as an adult and could face life imprisonment for the double murder.

Bone marrow tests were carried out after the prosecution expressed doubts about Cetin’s age.
