Father of Murdered Kids Arrested in Barcelona

Posted on 19 May 2010 by dianew

New details emerged this morning, that the Father of the 2 murdered children, Martin Smith, 45, of North Shields, was arrested in Barcelona on Friday, having been on Britain’s most wanted list for some years, charged with sex offences including rape and child sex abuse. He was extradited to the UK yesterday, possibly triggering a series of events that led to yesterday’s tragedy.

The Mother, Lianne Smith confessed to Police and a Judge yesterday that she smothered the children    with a plastic bag, stating she was afraid they would be taken from her. She is due to appear in court Thursday morning.

The 5 year old girl, Rebecca, was reported missing from Staffordshire in 2007, and it would appear that 11 month old Daniel was born while the Parents were on the run, since Martin Smith jumped bail in 2007.

Autopsies are being carried out on the two little ones today, Wednesday.

This very sad tale has captured the hearts of the Spanish people, who consider their children to be special gifts to be treasured, and are unable to comprehend how a Mother could do this.
