Family of Point Cook house fire victim Abbey Forrest remember young mum

The sister of a young mum who was killed alongside her partner and their newborn daughter in a southwest Melbourne house fire has said she was already an amazing mother.

Abbey Forrest, 19, her partner Inda Sohal, 28, and their daughter Ivy, who was just 19 days old, died when fire engulfed the Point Cook townhouse on Wednesday morning.

The young family had only moved in three weeks earlier.

Jenny Hayes, 46, who was charged on Thursday evening with three counts of murder and three of arson causing death, declined to appear in Melbourne Magistrates Court on Thursday night as her case was briefly mentioned.

‘Beautiful souls’

Abbey’s sister, Emily Forrest, fought back tears as she visited what remains of the house on Thursday, laying flowers and a Peppa Pig doll outside in a tribute to the “beautiful souls”.

“I just know that she would just turn around and just tell me to try and remain really strong,” she said.

“She’s always been a really brave person.”
