A jury has begun its deliberations in the trial of a woman accused of the manslaughter of a mother and daughter in a house fire in Milton Keynes.

Bola Ejifunmilayo, 29, and her daughter Fiyin, three, died in the fire in Fishermead Boulevard in September.

Barbara Zhanje, 48, of Mill Road, Kettering, Northamptonshire, denies two counts of manslaughter at St Albans Crown Court.

The jury will continue to consider its verdicts on Monday morning.

Ms Zhanje also denies one charge of arson being reckless as to whether anyone's life would be endangered.

The court has heard she began the fire to get back at her boyfriend, who lived at the multi-occupancy house.
