The other two charges in full are arson with intent to endanger life and arson being reckless as to whether life was endangered.

Ms Abrey and her unborn baby died in hospital on Monday night.

Her unborn baby died of cardiac arrest due to Mrs Abrey's inhalation of fire fumes.

Essex Police are continuing to appeal for anyone who had any more information about the fire.
