The judge, Jeremy Richardson QC, told the pair: “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 overarching conspiracy to murder those children.
“I have little doubt that each of you will in due course be sentenced to several terms of life imprisonment. It’s a matter for the judge where a whole life order is imposed.”
No details were given in court about how the children died or what happened in the house in the days before the deaths on 24 May.
The judge said the full case would be heard at sentencing on 12 November.

The cause of death of the two boys has never been released.
