Burnley man accused of double murder

A FORMER Burnley man 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. Their bodies were found by a relative at Mrs Holgate’s home in Southport 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.

He was remanded in custody to appear at South Sefton Magistrates’ Court.
