Mum who drowned twins ‘in revenge’ at ex sends ‘twisted’ letter to kids’ nan

A mum who drowned her baby twins in alleged revenge against her husband has sent a "twisted" letter to their grandmother.

Samantha Ford, 38, killed 23-month-old babies Jake and Chloe in the bath on Boxing Day after returning to the UK from Qatar with partner Steven, 36.

The relationship soured after they ended up in Margate, Kent.

Before their split, Ford had told her husband: “You have ripped my world apart, now we are nothing but a miserable, broken family growing up in a s***hole.”

Last night, Steven revealed the killer sent his mum a letter from the mental health unit she’s currently being treated in.

“Trevor Gibbens Unit in Maidstone should be ashamed for letting this happen. The injustice continues."

Ford was sentenced to 10 years in August after admitting two counts of manslaughter by diminished responsibility at The Old Bailey.
