The family of a young mum killed by yobs who set her home on fire say 10 years on from the horrific crime, they still have “no justice”.

Angela Brown died trying to rescue her sleeping children from the ferocious fire that swept thorough their Pennyburn home on September 28, 2008.

However the smoke and flames were too much for the brave 31-year-old mum-of-five and after bringing her three-year-old Kassie to safety, she perished on the staircase of her Culzean Place home trying to rescue her two boys, Kyle, six and Sean, 12.

Just two days after her death two boys, Stephen Muir and Jordan Briggs, who were 15 and 13 at the time were charged with her murder, later reduced to culpable homicide, after it was discovered they had crept in and torched the family home as they slept.

Today, on the tenth anniversary of the shocking crime, Angela’s eldest daughter Nichole, now 24, says no matter how much time passes, the family will never heal.

She said: “It’s still raw, it never ever does get any easier. It’s been absolutely horrific for all of us to lose our mum at such a young age. She was more than a mum, she was a dad, a best friend and she’s missed so much. It’s so traumatising. I feel like my heart is shattered. There’s always that pain in there.”

Nichole says she, twin brothers Declan and Sean, both 22, younger brother Kyle, now 16 and Kassie, now 13, have had their pain made so much worse by the lenient punishment her mum’s killers received.

She said: “At first they were getting charged with murder but the court agreed the lesser charge of culpable homicide which was all to do with their ages.

“They were originally sentenced for 12 years, however they appealed that and the three appeal judges said that the original judge was ‘too emotionally attached’ because he used the words “extraordinary wickedness” about the killers so they thought they didn’t deserve the 12 years and reduced it to nine. But with good behaviour and stuff it was reduced further.

“We weren’t told anything, we had to learn through a reporter who came to the door in 2015 that they were out and had been for a year.

“It’s unjust. I have always seen it as murder. I was a year older than one of the boys and a year younger than the other one and at 13 and 15 you know exactly what you’re doing. You know right from wrong.

“They set fire to a cushion in a bedroom and set fire to my sister’s fluffy baby blanket that was hanging on the stairs, knowing that staircase was their only way out.

“They had broke into other houses and set fire to the park bins previously, but none of that seemed to matter.

“I would have liked to have seen them getting done with murder. It wasn’t an accident.”

On the anniversary of her mum’s tragic death Nichole shared two photographs on Facebook and told the story of what happened that fateful night a decade ago. Since Friday her post has been shared more than 46,000 times and had more than 10,000 comments and the carer has received hundreds of private messages from people across the globe.

Nichole says she has found strength in the kind words of strangers, adding: “It’s been overwhelming. People have been so supportive and it’s a nice feeling that mum is still touching and affecting people even now.

“Everyone knew her and loved her. Even before she died she was well loved. She touched everybody’s hearts so when she was killed, it affected everybody.

“We just want to do her justice because it’s something that she never got.”
