“Murder-suicide” couple to have joint funeral

A SCOTS couple who died in an apparent murder-suicide will have a joint funeral service.

Donna Graham was found dead at home with head injuries believed to have been inflicted by her husband of almost 30 years, Kenneth, who is thought to have stabbed himself in the heart.

Donna and Kenneth Graham “will both be sadly missed by all” said the death notice



Despite the tragic circumstances of their deaths almost a month ago, the couple’s family have organised a joint ceremony this Friday.

Donna, 51, and Kenneth, 52, were found in their home in South Queensferry, Edinburgh, just a week before their 30th wedding anniversary.

Their joint death notice, published in a  local newspaper yesterday (tue), stated they had died “tragically at home” before going on to describe them as “loving a devoted parents of Laura and Lisa”.

The notice added: “They will both be sadly missed by all family and friends.”

The funeral, said the notice, will take place at the city’s Mortonhall Crematorium, “to which all are welcome”.

A horrified neighbour who broke into their home on February 23 is believed to have found Donna dead in her bedroom, while her husband was discovered in the kitchen surrounded by a pool of blood.

Last week it was revealed that Donna had died as the result of a “traumatic head injury” while Mr Graham had suffered a fatal stab wound to his heart.

Just days after their parents’ deaths, Laura, 27, and her younger sister Lisa, 23, said in a statement: “Our parents were the most loving, caring couple and the shock of their deaths alone is too hard to come to terms with.”

Police have confirmed that they are not looking for anyone else in connection with the deaths but have made no comment on how or why the couple died.

Neighbours were deeply shocked by the deaths, saying the pair seemed like “a normal everyday couple”.
