Point Cook fire accused called son after blaze which killed young family-of-three

The son of a mother-of-four charged with murder over a fatal blaze which killed a young family says she never meant to hurt anyone.

Abbey Forrest, 19, Inda Sohal, 28, and their newborn baby Ivy were found dead inside a burnt-out townhouse at Point Cook, in Melbourne’s southwest, on Wednesday.

The intensity of the fire raised suspicions among arson and explosives squad detectives that it may have been deliberately lit.

Jenny Hayes, 46, was arrested at Airport West on Thursday morning and charged with three counts of murder and one count of arson causing death over the blaze.

Speaking to 7NEWS, Hayes’ son Harley Robertson revealed his mother was a “complete wreck” over the deaths and called him shortly after the blaze erupted, saying: “I think I’ve done something stupid.”
