Northern Ireland man Leslie Ross accused of murdering ex-girlfriends dies

A Co Down man accused of murdering two former girlfriends has died.

Leslie Ross, of Mengalis Road, Dromore, was charged with murdering Michelle Bickerstaff (47) on April 21, 2012, and 50-year-old Margaret Weiss on August 31, 2007.

In March 2015 a court was told there was "insufficient evidence" to proceed with a charge of murder against Ross for the murder of a third former partner, Elizabeth McKee in 2002.

Ross, who always denied the charges, was released on bail in March 2016.

A death notice in the Belfast Telegraph said he died suddenly at his home. His funeral will take place at Roselawn Crematorium on Monday.
