The family of Kim, Kayleigh and Kimberley Buckley say they feel justice has been served after Carl Mills was jailed for life for their murders.
Today we feel justice has been served. Carl Mills starts a life sentence for 3 murders but for us, the family and friends of Kim, Kayleigh and Kimberley, our life sentence started on the 18th of September last year when three beautiful innocent people were torn from our lives.Our lives are never going to be the same again but we ask to be left in peace to come to terms with our losses.
We would also like thank the Police, CPS, Fire Service and everyone who helped bring this case to court and convict Carl Mills.
Detective Superintendent Peter Jones, who led the investigation into the murders, thanked the wider Coed Eva community for their support.
I would like to thank the family of Kim, Kayleigh and Kimberley for the patience and dignity they have shown throughout the investigation and subsequent court case at what has been a devastating time for them. Our thoughts remain with them and our specialist officers continue to offer support.
I would also like to thank the wider community of Coed Eva who have supported both the family and the police investigation throughout, I have no doubt the impact of this tragedy will continue to be felt widely amongst all of those living in the area.
The investigation team worked tirelessly to bring all of the incriminating evidence to court and today we have seen Carl Mills brought to justice for the horrific crimes he committed.
