VERDICTS of unlawful death have been recorded at an inquest into a former Sheffield woman and her two children.

Joy Small, aged 24, who grew up in Woodhouse and whose father lives in Mosborough, was killed by her ex-partner Aram Abdul Razaq Aziz in February last year. Aziz, 32, also murdered their three-year-old son, Aubarr, and daughter Chanara, two.

Joy’s body was found with those of her children in their home in Leicester, after Aziz was discovered hanging at a country park in Leicestershire the day before.

An Independent Police Complaints Commission investigation into Leicestershire Police’s contact with the family found there had been failings – but none amounted to misconduct.

IPCC Commissioner Amerdeep Somal said: “This was a truly tragic case. Some appropriate steps were taken by police to help Joy Small at different times. However some incidents could have been handled and recorded better.”
