Members of the public gallery shouted at Mick Philpott as the judge finished her sentencing. In response, Philpott smiled and made an obscene gesture as he was led from the dock.
Mick Philpott stuck two fingers up in court as the Judge told him he was a "disturbingly dangerous man" and would be sent to jail for life.
Speaking exclusively to ITV News, Dawn Bestwick said jail wasn't good enough for MIck Philpott and that "as a coward" he "deserved to die".
The judge has delayed her sentencing to "reflect further" on the trial Mick and Mairead Philpott and friend Paul Mosley.
