Plea expected in 1975 Lyon sisters murders

Plea expected in 1975 Lyon sisters murders”

A man has pleaded guilty to the murders of two young sisters from Maryland more than 40 years after the two girls vanished from a shopping center.

Photos of sisters Sheila Lyon, 12, and Katherine Lyon, 10, before their disappearance in 1975.

The convicted sex offender charged with the 1975 murders of Sheila and Katherine Lyon is expected to enter a plea Tuesday and be sentenced to life in prison, according to sources familiar with the case. The sentenced is to be served once he completes serving time in DE for an unrelated sexual assault.

Prosecutors believe Lloyd Lee Welch, Jr. kidnapped and later killed the girls, possibly disposing of their bodies on Taylor's Mountain in Bedford County where his family lived. They will run concurrently along with pending sexual battery charges in Prince William County.

FILE - In this February 11, 2014 file photo, Montgomery County Police Officer Robert Ladan uncovers photos of Lloyd Lee Welch Jr. during a news conference in Gaithersburg, Md. A published report says Welch, accused in the 1975 murders of two young sisters who disappeared from a Maryland shopping mall, plans to plead guilty to a crime that's haunted the region for more than four decades.

Welch is now serving a 30 year sentence for the DE conviction, but he's scheduled to be released on that charge in the next seven to ten years.

By reaching a plea agreement, Welch has avoided the death penalty, which would have been possible in a trial. Online records indicate Welch will enter a plea that day instead.

The commonwealth's attorney says there are no other people of interest in the case but that the door is still open to future prosecution.
