Prestatyn fire: Family of five 'killed in pushchair row'

A woman has been accused of killing five members of the same family by deliberately starting a fire in a row over a neighbour's pushchair.

Melanie Smith, 43, denies murdering the two adults and three young children in the blaze at a flat in Prestatyn, Denbighshire, in October 2012.

Lee-Anna Shiers, 20, her nephew Bailey, four, and niece Skye, two, died at the scene. Her 15-month-old son Charlie and partner Liam Timbrell, 23, were rescued but died later in hospital.
