Earlier this year, the bodies of former Eastenders actress Sian Blake and her two children Zachary and Amon were found at their home in Erith, London in January after being reported missing the previous December.

Arthur Simpson Kent, Sian’s partner and father of the two boys, was found in Ghana after fleeing the UK earlier this year.

Simpson-Kent, a hairdresser, has admitted to killing her and their two children, and BBC News report that he is yet to enter a formal plea, and is unlikely to do so until July.

His trial is due to commence in October 2016.

Sian Blake had played Frankie Pierre in Eastenders between 1996 and 1997, and had suffered from motor neurone disease before her death.
