A woman has appeared in court charged with the murders of another woman and three children after a house fire in north Wales.
Melanie Jane Smith is charged with four counts of murder, one count of arson with intent to endanger life and threats to commit criminal damage.
The 42-year-old was remanded in custody by Prestatyn magistrates after a brief hearing.
She will appear at Mold Crown Court on Wednesday morning.
As she was led away some members of the public gallery called out the names of the dead children. One woman shouted: "Rot in hell."
Lee-Anna Shiers, 20, her nephew Bailey Allen, four, and niece Skye Allen, two, died in the blaze on October 19.
Firefighters managed to rescue Ms Shiers' 15-month-old son Charlie Timbrell from their first floor flat, but he died two days later in hospital.
Karen Dixon, District Crown Prosecutor in Wales, said: "The Crown Prosecution Service has been working with North Wales Police as their investigation into the circumstances surrounding this tragic fire has developed.
"Our role at this stage is to review the evidence gathered so far by North Wales Police and issue advice in respect of criminal charges.
"I can confirm that, having carried out a detailed evidential review, our conclusion is that there is sufficient evidence to charge Melanie Jane Smith with four counts of murder, one count of arson with intent to endanger life and one count of threats to cause criminal damage.
"We have also concluded that it is in the public interest to charge the defendant with these offences."
Ms Shiers' partner, Liam Timbrell, 23, who was also rescued from the fire, remains in a serious condition in hospital.
