Wales Fire: Man On Triple Murder Charge
A man has been remanded in custody after being charged with three counts of murder over a fire that killed three people at a house in Wales.
Kim Buckley, 46, her daughter Kayleigh, 17, and six-month-old granddaughter Kimberley all died in the blaze at their home in Cwmbran in the early hours of Tuesday.
The baby's father, 28-year-old Carl Mills, appeared at Caerphilly Magistrates' Court.
Kayleigh had recently given birth to twin daughters and was still coming to terms with the tragedy of losing one of them, Angel.
Detective Superintendent Pete Jones, from Gwent Police, said: "Our thoughts remain with the family of Kim, Kayleigh and Kimberley at this difficult time.
"I would like to thank the family and the wider community of Coed Eva for their patience and support throughout our investigation so far."
Devastated family members this week spoke of baby Kimberley's fight for life after her premature birth in March.
She had been allowed home with her mother and grandmother for the first time when she died in the blaze.
Kimberley was born on March 10 at just 24 weeks and five days.
Grandmother Mrs Buckley, a mother-of-four, had already lost two children to tragedy earlier in her life. She is survived by one child.
