Funeral for tragic pair

Have your say

A JOINT funeral for Michelle Stephen and her son Leon Weston will take place this week.

Five-year-old Leon was found dead next to the body of his mother in Parkhead Grove, Sighthill, last month.

A police investigation is continuing but it is believed Michelle, 31, took her own life after suffocating Leon.

The joint service will take place at Mortonhall Crematorium Main Chapel on Thursday at 3pm.

Earlier that day, at 11am, a memorial service for Leon will be held at St John’s and King’s Park Church in Dalkeith.
