Man charged with triple murder of mother, her son, and missing woman

A man has been charged with the murders of a mother and son, and another woman.

Anthony Russell, 38, is accused of killing Julie and David Williams, whose bodies were discovered 24 hours apart in separate flats in Coventry last week.

He is also charged with the murder of Nicole McGregor, 31, whose body was found in woodlands near Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, on Thursday.

The family of Ms McGregor said: ‘We wish to thank people for their well wishes, Nicole will be greatly missed. We request to be left alone to grieve at this difficult time.’


The body of Mr Williams, 32, who was last seen on October 20, was found at a flat in Riley Square in Coventry, at around 11.30pm on Monday.

The discovery came after his 58-year-old mother was found at her flat in Emily Smith House, also in Riley Square, just before 11pm on Sunday October 25, following concerns about her welfare.

Detective Inspector Jim Mahon said: ‘Our thoughts remain with the families of Julie, David and Nicole as they come to terms with the tragic circumstances of their deaths.

‘We want to thank everyone for their assistance with our appeals for information this week, we really appreciate it.

‘Our investigation continues and I would urge anyone with information who have not yet spoken to us, to get in touch.’

Russell, of Riley Square, Coventry, is expected to appear at Birmingham Magistrates’ Court on Sunday.

He is also charged with a car-jacking and a section 18 wounding that allegedly took place in Leamington Spa on Wednesday afternoon.
