Three charged with death of mum left in coma after fire killed her four children

Three people have been charged over the death of a woman who died 20 months after her four children were killed in a house fire.

Michelle Pearson, 37, had been at home on Jackson Street, in Walkden, Greater Manchester, when petrol bombs were thrown into the property in December 2017.

Her children Demi 15, Brandon, eight, Lacie, seven, and Lia were all killed in the fire and she was rushed to hospital with 75% burns across her body.

She was placed in a coma for several months and died of her injuries 20 months later on August 25 last year.


Her mother Sandra Lever said at the time: ‘Sadly last night, after a hard 20 months of fighting, our beautiful Michelle gained her wings and went to join her babies.’

Sandra had previously told how Michelle had to keep being reminded that her children had died for several weeks before she was able to remember.

Michelle had been informed of their deaths after waking up from a five-month coma after the fire.


Zak Bolland, 26, and David Worrall, 28, have both been charged with the murder of Mrs Pearson, while Courtney Brierley, 23, is accused of manslaughter.

All three of the suspects will appear before before Manchester and Salford Magistrates’ Court on September 15.
