THREE people will face the ACT Magistrates Court charged with the murder of Katherine Panin, 81, in her Red Hill home on October 12, 2015.
After a report that Katherine had fallen down the stairs she was transferred to hospital where she died from her injuries.
During an extensive investigation, police conducted enquiries and in June 2016, executed search warrants in the ACT on two addresses and three vehicles.
As a result of all enquiries, at about 9.30am this morning (August 25), police arrested the 60-year-old female and 29-year-old man in Red Hill. A 31-year-old male was arrested by police in NSW and is in the process of being extradited to the ACT.
All three offenders will face the ACT Magistrates Court charged with murder.
Detective superintendent J.H. (Ben) Cartwright says detectives have been working tirelessly on this investigation.
“They have followed every lead resulting in the arrest of the persons responsible for Katherine’s murder,” he says.
“The complex nature of homicide investigations, such as these, require expertise, commitment and immense sensitivity. The community trusts us to bring these offenders before court and we need to provide some closure to the family and friends of Katherine.”
