Two teenagers have been charged with manslaughter and arson after an 88-year-old woman was killed in a fire in east London.
They were also charged with arson with recklessness as to whether life was endangered.
A firework was recovered from the scene, and a post-mortem gave the cause of Ms Smith’s death as smoke inhalation.
Both were also charged with assault by beating, relating to a separate offence on October 27 in High Road, Ilford.
Cooper has been remanded in custody, while the 15-year-old has been bailed – and both will appear at the Old Bailey on Tuesday.
