Man jailed for 20 years for killing father and daughter in house blaze

A burglar who killed an eight-year-old girl and her father when he set fire to their house to destroy evidence of a break-in across the street has been jailed for 20 years.

Daniel Jones, 29, was found guilty of the manslaughter of Andrew Broadhead and his daughter Kiera following a trial at Leeds Crown Court last month. Mr Broadhead, his wife Sara, and their daughters Mia and Kiera, were asleep in their home in Stanley, Wakefield in the early hours of October last year when Jones poured petrol through their front door letterbox and set it alight.

Keira’s sister Mia Broadhead, 13, fought through tears to tell a courtroom full of barristers, prison officers and reporters about her “superhero” father.

She told the court: “It is too hard to say goodbye to my dad so I say ‘if I don’t see you through the week, I’ll see you in my dreams. I love you daddy’.”

Remembering her sister, she said: “My sissy was the world’s brightest star and nobody will dull her sparkle. I am thankful for the eight years we had with her - for her kindness, her funniness, her caring for one another and her humour. She didn’t deserve this, neither of them did.”

The Electoral Commission report revealed that 72% of voters with disabilities believed the June 8 poll was well run - considerably fewer than the 80% recorded among those without disabilities. In a survey of more than 3,500 voters, the commission heard complaints from disabled people that voting literature was difficult to read or understand and that polling stations were hard to access.
