Full review of Derrylin fire that left four dead ready in June

By Jane Scott

Forensic evidence in relation to a fatal house fire in Co Fermanagh which claimed the lives of three generations of the same family almost two months ago should be ready by the end of June, a court has heard.

The four victims - including a baby and two teenagers - all died in the blaze at the rented bungalow on Molly Road in Derrylin in the early hours of Tuesday, February 27.

They were Denise Pauline Gosset (45), also known as Crystal; Sabrina Patricia Elizabeth Gosset (19), also known as Elektra; Roman Edward Lewis Gosset (16), and Morgana Ulva Amira Quinn (1).

Sabrina and Roman were Denise's children, while Morgana was Sabrina's daughter.

The family were originally from Aberdeen but had previously lived in Doncaster and Tralee, Co Kerry before moving to the Fermanagh area around 18 months ago.

Daniel Allen (27) of Molly Road in Derrylin, is charged with four counts of murder and arson with intent to endanger life.

Allen yesterday appeared in court in Enniskillen again via video-link from Maghaberry Prison, where he has been in custody since March 5.

Wearing a blue sweatshirt and dark jeans, he spoke with an English accent but only to confirm that he could see and hear the court.

A Public Prosecution Service representative told the short hearing that she had spoken to the investigating police officer at the end of last week who confirmed that all the forensics have now been submitted.

District Judge Nigel Broderick was told that these reports are expected to be returned at the end of June.

Defence solicitor Gary Black said he noted the ongoing progress.

The judge adjourned the case for a further update.

Allen will appear in court again by video link on May 21.

Earlier this month, the Coroner released the remains of four people who died.
