Two men have been found guilty at Nottingham Crown Court of murdering a mother and her three children in a house fire in Leicester last year.

Shehnila Taufiq, 47, her sons Jamal, 15, and Bilal, 17, and 19-year-old daughter Zainab died in the blaze at their terraced house in Wood Hill, Leicester, in the early hours of 13 September 2013.

The victims, the family of Dublin-based neurosurgeon Dr Muhammad Taufiq al-Sattar, died in the fire.

Kemo Porter, 19, and Tristan Richards, 22, were found guilty of their murders.

Shaun Carter, 24, was found not guilty of four counts of murder but guilty of four counts of manslaughter.

Prosecutors alleged the fire was a “retribution process” for the fatal stabbing of Antoin Akpom, 20, hours earlier, but that the killers attacked the wrong house.
