The family died when a fire engulfed their house in Wood Hill, Leicester in September last year:

  • Shehnila Taufiq, 47
  • Zainab Taufiq, 19
  • Bilal, 17
  • Jamal, 15

Kemo Porter, 19, and Tristan Richards, 22, were found guilty of their murders at Nottingham Crown court.

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

Prosecutors said the fire was a botched revenge attack for the stabbing of Antoin Akpom, 20, but that the killers attacked the wrong house.
