Our thanks to Mike P for this. The start of the piece:
A grieving father whose twins were killed by their mum [J4MB: The man is referred to as a “father”, the woman who killed their children as “mum”] could lose the home he shared with them after she launched a divorce bid from a psychiatric unit.
Samantha Ford, 38, was jailed last year for drowning 23-month-old Jake and Chloe in the bath at her home in Kent on Boxing Day 2018.
Her actions were described as a twisted act of vengeance against her estranged husband, Steven, [J4MB emphasis] during a trial at the Old Bailey.
The mum was sentenced to 10 years – to be served at a psychiatric unit until she is deemed fit for prison – after entering a guilty plea of manslaughter by diminished responsibility.
But in a new blow to the children’s grieving father, he has now been told Ford is pushing for divorce, which he says could potentially see him lose his house – the home he shared with Jake and Chloe – in Charing, near Ashford.
