John Donald MERRETT



John Donald Merrett, who was tried for the murder of his mother in 1927. The verdict was unproven
as ballistics could not ascertain if the gunshot wound from which she died was suicide. He changed
his name to Ronald Chesney, and was later convicted of killing his wife Veronica Bonnar and mother
in law Lady Mary Menzies in February 1954. (Photo by Central Press/Hulton Archive/Getty Images)
