A 15-year-old girl has been found guilty of murdering a mother and daughter who were killed as they slept.

Elizabeth Edwards and her 13-year-old daughter Katie were killed in Spalding, Lincolnshire in 2015.

The teenager, who cannot be named because of her age, had denied the murders due to diminished responsibility.

Her boyfriend – also aged 15 – had already admitted the killings.

The teenagers are thought to be Britain”s youngest ever couple to be convicted of murder.
