35-year-old Sarah Barrass has confessed to killing her two sons Tristan, 13, and Blake, 14, after being arraigned before a Sheffield Crown Court on five counts of attempted murder and one count of conspiracy to murder six children. A family member, 39-year-old Brandon Machin also pleaded guilty to killing Tristan and Blake Barrass who died just 12 minutes apart in May and being part of the conspiracy to murder six children. The boys died on May 14 after they sent a message to a friend telling them “we’re not coming to school” as they felt sick on the day of their death. Though the South Yorkshire Police is yet to release the cause of the two boys’ death after an inquest was launched earlier this year, the court heard that all of the surviving children are under the age of 13. Judge Jeremy Richardson QC in his remark after the duo entered a last minute plea as they faced a life in prison sentence, said; “No words of mine can ever fully reflect the enormity of what you have both done.”The crimes you have committed quite frankly speak for themselves. The murder of two children.”The attempted murder of four children and the over-arching conspiracy to murder those children.”I repeat, those crimes speak for themselves. I have little doubt that each of you will in due course be sentenced to several terms of life imprisonment.”This may well be a case, but it’s a matter for the judge, where a whole life order is imposed.” Sarah who cried throughout the 20-minute hearing and Machin who showed no emotion will be sentenced on November 12.
