A man has been charged with murdering three people including a mother and son in Coventry.

A manhunt was launched for Anthony Russell after the bodies of Julia Williams and her son David were found in separate flats in Coventry earlier this week.

31-year-old Nichola McGregor was later found on Thursday (October 29) in woodland in Newbold Comyn near Leamington.

The causes of their deaths are yet to be established.

A post mortem for the victims proved inconclusive and further tests will be carried out to understand the exact cause of their deaths.  


Officers discovered Russell in a car in a country lane in the village of Rolleston-on-Dove in Staffordshire at around 4am on Friday (30th October).

He was in a Ford C-Max car, which was stolen in a car-jacking in Leamington on Wednesday afternoon.

Police are still appealing for information and are urging anyone with information to come forward.
