    NEWS: Two plead guilty to murders of Shiregreen brothers

    A woman and a man have today pleaded guilty to the murders of two brothers in Shiregreen, Sheffield.

    Sarah Barrass, 35, of Gregg House Road, and Brandon Machin, 39, of Burngreave Road, admitted the murder of Blake Barrass, 14, and his brother Tristan, 13 at Sheffield Crown Court.

    The defendants both pleaded guilty to two counts of murder, five counts of attempted murder and one count of conspiracy to murder relating to Blake and Tristan along with four other children in the family, all aged under 13, who cannot be named for legal reasons.

    The Recorder of Sheffield, Judge Jeremy Richardson QC, said today: "No words of mine can ever fully reflect the enormity of what you have both done. The crimes you have committed, quite frankly, speak for themselves.

    "The murder of two children, the attempted murder of four children and the overarching conspiracy to murder those children - I repeat, those crimes speak for themselves.

    "I have little doubt that each of you will, in due course, be sentenced to several terms of life imprisonment. This may well be a case - but it's a matter for the judge - where a whole life order is imposed."

    The hearing follows an incident at a house on Gregg House Road, Shiregreen, in May this year.

    Barrass, the mother of the children, and Machin were both remanded in custody ahead of sentencing, which has been set for 12 November.

    No details were given in court about what happened to the children inside the house in the Shiregreen area of Sheffield on May 24 and May 25 this year.

    South Yorkshire Police has never released the cause of the two boys' death and it was not given when an inquest was opened earlier this year.

    The court heard that all of the surviving children are under the age of 13.

    Still no mention of how they murdered them. Why might this be?

    WHY would she want to kill all her children? Yes there aren't many details being released here and I'm not sure there will be.

    Sentencing hearing will give details. CPS will have to outline their case to the judge.

    I think it’s important to remember she didn’t act alone. Although it’s often seen as more devastating when it’s a woman - perhaps because women carry and give birth to children? We tend to expect a lot more from women than men. I hope the children get the justice they so deserve.

    A personality disorder of some sort I'm guessing. Seeing the children as objects or possessions to be disposed of when not convenient. The planning element makes it worse, sadistic even.

    Personality disorder or some “syndrome” to explain this?
    Naw, just narcissistic, selfish, garden variety miscreants. Let’s not give them a “disorder” defense. No go.

    Amateur opinion and speculation
