A killer from Essex who shot dead his former partner and their 2-year-old daughter has died in hospital.
David Oakes subjected Christine Chambers to degrading assaults at her home in Braintree, before blasting her and their daughter Shania with a shotgun in 2011.
The 51-year-old was told he'd spend the rest of his life in prison - in the end, he served less than a year behind bars.
