A jury found Mick and Mairead Philpott guilty of the killing of the six siblings, aged 5 to 13, in a house fire in Derby, central England, in May 2012. Paul Mosley, a friend of the couple, was also convicted of manslaughter Tuesday.

Prosecutors say the three hatched a plan to start the gasoline-fuelled fire to blame Mick Philpott’s former mistress and gain favour for him in family court proceedings. They didn’t intend to kill the children.

The children were asleep in their beds when the fire started. Five of them died that morning, and the sixth died three days later in the hospital.

The defendants will be sentenced Wednesday
