A Home Office pathologist said he could not say "with certainty" whether the 28-year-old was alive when they put her in the car, but the fire was the "most likely the cause of death".

Mr Justice Morris described Unwin as a "calculating, manipulating and ruthless killer" and branded McFall "an extremely violent man capable of monstrous behaviour".In a victim impact statement read out in court, Quyen's sister, Quynh, said: "She did not deserve to die in this horrific manner."They did not act like human beings. They are evil."Unwin had been released on licence in December 2012 having battered a pensioner to death during a break-in on Christmas Day 1998.The fire he started to cover his tracks meant the victim could only be identified by his medical records.McFall was released on licence in October 2010 after killing a pensioner with a hammer when she disturbed him breaking into her home in Carrickfergus in May 1996.
