Two more men have appeared in court charged with murdering a mother and her four children in a house fire.
Aaron Webb, 19, and Akeem Jeffers, 21, appeared before magistrates in Leicester today charged with the murders of Shehnila Taufiq, 47, her daughter Zainab, 19, and sons Bilal, 17, and Jamil, 15.
The four family members died when flames engulfed their home in Wood Hill, Leicester, on Friday September 13.
Webb and Jeffers were remanded in custody to appear at the city's Crown Court on Wednesday for a bail hearing.
Seven people have now been charged in connection with the fire.
