A man has today been convicted at Paisley High Court for murdering his wife in West Lothian.
Erhan Havaleoglu repeatedly stabbed Leighanne Cameron at her home in Calder House Road, Mid Calder, on 28 October 2015.
The 29-year-old mum of two, who had separated from Havaleoglu some months before, suffered injuries to her neck, stomach and back.
She was taken to hospital but was sadly pronounced dead a short time later.
Following a two-week trial, the now 36-year-old Havaleoglu was found guilty of Leighanne’s murder.
He is due to be sentenced on September 13.
Detective Chief Inspector Raymond Brown of Police Scotland’s Major Investigation Team said:
“Leighanne’s death has been absolutely devastating for her family and those close to her.
“Her five-year-old daughter and two-year-old son have been robbed of their loving mum in the most horrific of circumstances.
“Havaleoglu has callously refused to admit responsibility for Leighanne’s murder ever since, despite extensive evidence against him, and we welcome today’s decision.
“Unfortunately, nothing can undo his actions that day but hopefully this verdict brings some sense of closure to all who knew and loved Leighanne.”
