A MUM today clutched a red toy as she appeared in court over the deaths of her two sets of twin sons killed in a horror house fire.
Deveca Rose, 29, was charged on Thursday with four counts of manslaughter following the deaths of four brothers in a fire in south London in December 2021.
She was also charged with child abandonment contrary to the Children and Young Persons Act 1933.
Today she appeared at Bromley Magistrates' Court wearing a facemask, a black coat, jeans and trainers.
She appeared devastated as she clutched a red heart toy and slumped in her seat before being told to stand.
Deveca was accompanied by her family including her mother, who sat tearfully at the back of the court.
No plea was given and her next appearance will be at the Old Bailey on January 8.
It follows the tragic death of two sets of twin brothers – Leyton and Logan Hoath, aged three, and Kyson and Bryson Hoath, aged four.
Emergency services were called to a fire at an address in Collingwood Road, Sutton, at around 7pm on December 16, 2021.
The huge inferno ripped through the entire ground floor of the mid-terraced house overwhelming the four boys with smoke.
