The family of a mother and her daughter found stabbed to death at a house in Oxfordshire at the weekend have paid tribute to them.

Julie Sahin, 50, and Michaela Gol, 28, were found after officers went to a home in Ireton Court, Thame, on Sunday.

Mrs Sahin's brothers said their sister and niece "were much loved and will always have a place in our hearts".

Mrs Gol's husband, Turkish national Ensar Gol, 21, of Ireton Court, has been charged with two counts of murder.

He was remanded in custody and is due before Oxford Crown Court later.

'Cruelly taken'

Mr Gol is also charged with the attempted murder of Casey Wilson, 19, who is a friend of his wife's family.

She remains in hospital receiving treatment for her injuries.

Police said post-mortem examinations showed Mrs Gol and Mrs Sahin died from multiple stab wounds.

Appearing before magistrates on Tuesday, Mr Gol spoke through a Turkish interpreter to confirm his name and date of birth.

The tribute from Mrs Sahin and Mrs Gol's family read: "We have had our sister and niece cruelly and tragically taken away from us.

"They were much loved and will always have a place in our hearts."
