A man jailed for helping Mick and Mairead Philpott kill their kids in a house fire is due to be released within weeks after serving half his sentence.
Paul Mosley, 54, got 17 years for manslaughter – but will be out on licence in May after serving eight.
The dad-of-two claims he is innocent. He wrote to a local newspaper: “In May when I am free I will show you the evidence that proves my innocence and shows that I was set up by Derbyshire Police and the witnesses.”
Duwayne Philpott, 13, died alongside his half-sister Jade, 10, and half-brothers Jack, nine, John, eight, Jesse, six and Jayden, five, in the fire in May 2012.
It was started by their dad in a bid to frame his ex-girlfriend and win custody of their children.
Philpott, 65, who lived in Derby, was helped by wife Mairead, 39, and family friend Mosley.
They denied involvement but were convicted of manslaughter at Nottingham crown court in 2013. Philpott got life while his wife and Mosley each got 17 years.
There was outrage last year as Mairead was released on licence and handed a new identity after serving just half her term.
Mid-Derbyshire MP Pauline Latham said of Mosley’s release: “Once again, the time served for the life of each of those poor children amounts to less than 18 months.”
The Prison Service said: “Sentencing decisions are a matter for the independent judiciary who consider the full facts.”Follow the Official Rokna NEWS Telegram Channel For More and fresh NEWS.
