Two people have been charged with murder after a house fire in Manchester left three children dead.

Police confirmed that Zac Bolland, 23, of Blackleach Drive, Worsley, has been charged with three counts of murder, four counts of attempted murder and one count of arson with intent to endanger life.

Courtney Brierley, 20, of Worsley Avenue, Worsley has also been charged with the same.

They both remain in custody and are due to appear at Manchester and Salford Magistrates’ Court later today.

Three children, believed to be 14-year-old Demi Pearson, 8-year-old Brandon Pearson and 7-year-old Lacie Pearson, died in the blaze.

Their 35-year-old mother and three-year-old sister remain in hospital.

Two 16-year-old boys were able to escape the property.

The Manchester Fire Service was called to the house in Jackson Street, Walkden at 4.58am on Monday, December 11.

GMP has voluntarily referred the case to the Independent Police Complaints Commission due to previous contact with the family as a result of previous incidents at the property.

Security measures had been put in place at the mid-terrace home, including the fitting of a device to the property’s letterbox.

The arrangements, known as target hardening, are generally used to strengthen a building to protect it in the event of an attack.

Greater Manchester Police confirmed there had been “earlier incidents” at the address.

It is understood the voluntary referral was in response to police contact with the family less than 24 hours before the fatal incident.

He was charged with committing the crime against the girls between April and July 2016. One of the girls is aged 14 while two are 15 years old.

One of the minors who is an orphan painfully narrated to the court how the bishop lured her and her grandmother to the trap.

“My grandmother brought me to him and he promised to sponsor my education. My grandmother went back home and left me with him at the church,” said the minor.

After a while, she told the court, the bishop defiled her and called the other girl and defiled them too as she slept on the floor. She said they were crying throughout the ordeal.

The court heard that the following morning the bishop refused to allow them to go to school but instead ordered them to go to church.
