A burglar who killed an eight-year-old girl and her father by setting their home alight has been jailed for 20 years by a judge at Leeds Crown Court.
Andrew Broadhead and his daughter Kiera died in the arson attack on their home at Stanley near Wakefield last year.
Daniel Jones, 29, torched their home because he wrongly thought he'd been caught on CCTV burgling a nearby house a few days earlier.
Jones had denied murder but a jury found him guilty of manslaughter.
