Thirteen-year-old with her partner slaughtered her mother and sister

Spalding killers

Spalding killers

These are the custody pictures of a fresh-faced couple believed to be Britain's youngest double murderers.

Edwards bore grudges towards her mother and sister which Markham came to share, leading them to "jointly" decide to kill Mrs Markham and "entirely innocent" Katie.

Justice Haddon-Cave, who sentenced the pair at Nottingham Crown Court, said they had a "toxic" relationship.

No new material had been put before the court to "justify the conclusion that lifting anonymity would cause harm to either appellant", and there was no evidence that reporting their identities would adversely affect their future rehabilitation.

Thursday April 14: Edwards and Markham are reported missing to the police by their school and his aunt. After being asked "Where's your lovely smile x", Edwards replies "It disappeared x.' Mrs Edwards then asks 'Why Hun x" and adds 'I think it's under ur bed lol x'. "Then he said he wasn't joking either and it escalated from there".

The couple, likened to Bonnie and Clyde during their trial, had sex, shared a bath and watched four Twilight vampire films as they "revelled" after the killings.

The pair were discovered at the address in Dawson Avenue afterwards and arrested by police.

Both were stabbed in the neck by Markham with a kitchen knife.

Elizabeth and Katie both died from their injuries.

Tuesday September 6: Edwards and Markham both admit manslaughter but plead not guilty to murder.

Jurors heard she was the "driver" behind a "cold and brutal" plot to kill her own mum and sister.

"The murders of Elizabeth and Katie Edwards were horrific and brutal and the whole country shared a sense of shock that two juveniles, who were only 14 years old at the time, could have carried out such a horrendous act".

After a trial at Nottingham Crown Court in 2016 both defendants were given life sentences for the killings, which were planned in a McDonald's.

Sir Brian said the facts of the case "cannot be properly understood without identifying that the appellants murdered the mother and 13-year-old sister of Kim Edwards". "Unless one knows this singular fact, it is impossible to understand the true motive behind these murders".
