A couple from Inverkip, Edward Cairney (77) and Avril Jones (59), have been found guilty of murdering Margaret Fleming in December 1999 or January 2000.
They have been on trial for 7 weeks and the jurors took just three and a half hours to reach a majority verdict on the charges at the High Court in Glasgow.
They had been claiming benefits for Margaret but the authorities became suspicious in October 2016. A massive police search for Margaret was launched but no trace of her was found.
Avril Jones was also found guilty of fraudulently claiming £182,000 in benefits by pretending that Margaret was still alive.
