The funeral will take place this morning of a Co.Fermanagh woman killed in a suspected murder suicide. 

Concepta Leonard was stabbed to death at her home near Maguiresbridge on Monday evening. 

Musicians are due to form a gaurd of honour near St Mary's Church in Brookeborough this morning to pay tribute to their friend and neighbour. 

Concepta's son Conor, who has downs syndrome, was also stabbed in the abdomen but has been released from hospital. 

The man believed to be responsible was Ms.Leonards ex partner - Peadear Phair- who had been ordered by the courts not to approach her.  

The 55 year old took his own life after his alleged crimes.

His funeral was held yesterday in a low key affair.
