Police have charged a man with murder following the murder of Rose-Marie Tinton on Folkestone Road in January.
54-year-old Andrew Tinton, the son of Rose-Marie, will appear in court next month to answer the charges.
Rose-Marie, known to friends as ‘Marie’ and a former director of the Spiritual Assembly of the Baháʼís of Sefton, is believed to have been murdered in her own home, Police confirmed in February.
Earlier this year, OTS News revealed that Mr Tinton, unnamed at the time, was involved in a collision with a train shortly after his mother’s suspected time of death.
Mr Tinton was arrested by officers, but his condition and length of recovery prevented officers from properly questioning the suspect. In February, Police said that injuries to Mr Tinton would ” will inevitably delay the investigation”.
This morning Merseyside Police said: “We have charged a 54-year-old man with the murder of Rose-Marie Tinton.
Officers attended at a house in Folkestone Road in Southport on the evening of Friday 29th January this year where they found the body of a woman. Mrs Tinton, 82, was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.
Andrew Tinton, formerly of Folkestone Road in Southport, has been charged with her murder.
He is currently remanded into custody to appear at South Sefton magistrates court on Friday 1st October.”
