'I can't forgive mum..we had a service for my baby sister and brother to show they WERE loved'

If nothing else, he deserved the chance to mourn his fiveyear-old sister and baby brother, both murdered on the Costa Brava by his mother Lianne Smith.

But, in a final insult, cruel Lianne prevented her elder son Chris - who she walked out on almost three years ago - from even going to the funeral in Spain of little Rebecca and Daniel.

Instead, 800 miles away in the UK, the 19-year-old had to organise a heartbreaking memorial service on Friday to his brother and sister, a chance at last to pay his respects.

"I can never forgive her for murdering my brother and sister," shopworker Chris says in an exclusive interview with the Sunday Mirror.

"She deserves everything they throw at her - no punishment could be enough.

Father of hotel death children in court

AN ALLEGED paedophile whose wife is accused of murdering their two children in a Spanish hotel has denied a string of sex offences.
Martin Smith, 45, pleaded not guilty to three charges of rape, three of attempted rape, four of indecent assault and one of indecency with a child.

The charges relate to offences allegedly committed between May 1995 and April 2004 against one child.

Smith, who wore jeans and a blue fleece top, spoke only to enter his not-guilty pleas at the Carlisle Crown Court hearing.

His daughter Rebecca, five, and son Daniel, 11 months, died in the Hotel Miramar in Lloret de Mar on 18 May. Their mother, Lianne Smith, 43, is being held by Spanish police on suspicion of murder. She has appeared in court and admitted asphyxiating her children with a plastic bag.

Her husband was arrested in Spain on 7 May after the family left the UK in 2007 following his initial arrest over child sex allegations. He allegedly jumped bail. He was remanded in custody yesterday and is due to stand trial at Manchester Crown Court on 1 November.

TV hypnotist 'raped me after trying to put me in a trance'

A young woman told a court yesterday how a TV psychic tried to put her in a hypnotic trance before he sexually assaulted her.

The 22-year-old said she was first abused by Martin Smith when she was just seven.

She told a jury that as she grew up he would regularly try to hypnotise her before carrying out more serious assaults.

Smith’s trial comes seven months after his partner Lianne Smith suffocated their two young children in a hotel in Spain.

Just days earlier he had been extradited from Spain to the UK to answer the abuse charges.

Rebecca, five, and Daniel, 11 months, were found lifeless on the bed in the Hotel Miramar in Lloret de Mar.

Miss Smith is due to go before a judge accused of their murders.

The couple are not married but share the same surname.

Martin Smith was first arrested over the abuse claims after the alleged victim – who cannot be named for legal reasons – went to police in 2007.

Giving evidence from behind a screen at Manchester Crown Court, she said: ‘He thought he knew how to hypnotise me.

Murder accused mother 'tried to protect children'

A woman accused of murdering her two children in a Spanish hotel room today choked back tears as she told a court she tried to "protect" her children from social services.

Lianne Smith, 44, was giving evidence to Manchester Crown Court in defence of her partner, Martin Smith, 45, who is accused of a string of child sex offences.

Miss Smith spoke via a video-link from Spain where she is being held on suspicion of the murder of the couple's two children, Rebecca, five, and son Daniel, 11 months.

Both were found dead in the Hotel Miramar in the resort of Lloret de Mar on the Costa Brava on May 18.

Miss Smith is due to stand trial in Spain accused of their murder.

Today via a grainy, black and white video link from what appeared to be an office, Miss Smith spoke directly at the camera as she was questioned about her partner.

The couple had left the UK in December 2007 after Smith had been accused of the child sex offences, which he denies.

Kim Whittlestone, defending Smith, asked his partner, why they left the UK for Spain.

Fighting back tears, Miss Smith replied: "We left to protect Becky, so...sorry, we left to protect her from Staffordshire Social Services and in particular to protect her from the social workers, who had a mission to take our daughter off us."

Miss Smith said social workers had made the "threat" her daughter would be taken away.

"They had already made that threat on the telephone, they retracted that in front of our lawyer, but they made that threat," she added.

Her partner, originally from North Shields, is accused of using hypnotism and violence to groom and sexually abuse a young girl, who he had regular access to, over the period of a decade.

I still love him, 'child killer' tells trial of boyfriend on paedophile charges

She was calm at first, almost matter of fact.
In a soft, clear voice, Lianne Smith insisted she still loved her long-time partner, even though he is in court on paedophile charges.

She faltered only occasionally and if she had any tears, she didn’t let them spill.
Occasionally she would smile; once she even laughed.

It was when she started to talk about her children that her remarkable composure broke.
The 44-year-old explained to a jury yesterday that she had moved to Spain with her partner Martin Smith three years ago to keep their two-year-old daughter from the clutches of social services.

She did it to ‘protect’ her, she said, using the word completely without irony.

What she failed to explain was that shortly after Smith was arrested on child sex charges last May, she was in a Costa Brava hotel room with the little girl and her baby brother lying dead on the bed beside her.

Soon she will face her own trial in Spain, accused not of protecting them, but of murdering them.

Yesterday she never once mentioned their deaths.

TV Psychic Guilty Of Child Sex Offences

The father of two children allegedly killed by their mother in Spain has been convicted of a string of child sex offences.

Martin Smith, 45, whose wife Lianne is accused of the murder of their children in a Spanish hotel, was found guilty of 11 offences by a jury at Manchester Crown Court.

He used hypnotism and violence to groom and sexually abuse a young girl.

Smith had regular access to the girl and abused her for almost a decade, from when she was just seven years old.

Manchester Crown Court heard that the victim, now in her 20s, was hit and bullied by Smith until she complied with his demands.

He also attempted to hypnotise her.

In a statement read by police outside court, his victim said: "I am delighted with today's verdict.

"My motivaton has always been to protect other children from Martin Smith.

"He abused me for more than a decade.

"Even after his arrest, he prolonged my agony by fleeing abroad.

"I would like to thank my family and friends for their support, the Crown Prosecution Service and Cumbria Police for bringing this man to justice and the care and sympathy they have shown me.

"I hope that this case encourages other victims of abuse to come forward with confidence.”

Mother awaiting trial over the death of her two children is told TV psychic 'was not the father'

Lianne Smith, the British mother awaiting trial in Spain for killing her two children, has been told that her convicted paedophile partner is not their father.

She says police informed her that DNA tests on the bodies of five-year-old Rebecca and 11-month-old Daniel prove they are no relation to former TV psychic Martin Smith.

Yesterday she described the claims as ‘nonsense’ and added: ‘I’ve never been unfaithful.’

Miss Smith, 44, fled Britain with her lover three years ago after he was accused of raping and sexually assaulting a young girl during a decade-long reign of terror.

He was extradited from Spain in May, and days later Miss Smith, a former children’s social worker in Cumbria, is alleged to have smothered Rebecca and Daniel with a plastic bag in a hotel room on the Costa Brava.

She has told the Daily Mail that she did it so they could not be taken into care.

From her prison cell yesterday, she said: ‘The Spanish police must have mixed up the DNA samples. I know I’ve only slept with Martin since we got together.

They’re both definitely Martin’s children. Daniel was conceived when we got to Spain. Is anyone seriously suggesting that I slept with someone in Spain? It’s ludicrous.

‘Martin knows they’re both his and I know he’ll know the DNA tests are wrong.

‘I want to get the tests re-done by someone independent in the UK but I’m not sure the Spanish authorities will let me. It feels like such a cruel accusation. I love Martin and would never even think of cheating on him.’

Miss Smith, who faces 20 years in jail if found guilty of murder, told a friend that she has instructed solicitors to order new pathology results on her children’s bodies.

She added: ‘I was devastated when the Spanish police told me the DNA tests showed that our children were not Martin’s.
