42-year-old David Wyn Jones was indefinitely detained in a secure hospital after pleading guilty to manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility at Caernarfon Crown Court.

Today a Serious Case Review carried out by Gwynedd & Anglesey Community Safety Partnership and the Gwynedd & Anglesey Local Safeguarding Children Board concluded that:
While the outcome may not have been different, if there had been a more rigorous, assessment of the children’s needs, of the impact of the parental mental health on the father’s parenting capacity..., a more rigorous sharing of information,.. the question of whether the tragedy could have been avoided may have been easier to answer.
The Serious Case Review concluded that "that there are lessons to be learnt" and one should be that the relevant authorities develop and implement a standardised approach to risk assessment.
