Justice Patricia McGowan said if not for Troisi’s mental health issues he would have been jailed for life.
She said he was a “danger to the public” for the “foreseeable future.”
She said: “You clearly planned what you were going to do because you went to get a petrol can.
“Having set the fire in the way that you did you killed a young woman and her unborn child.
“You placed the lives of all the other occupants of the building in very great risk and you also endangered the lives of the firefighters and the emergency services who were there to help.”A truly awful crime.
Khabi Abrey’s husband Stuart sat in court as his wife’s killer was sentenced to detention under the Mental Health Act, which he said was the right decision.
A victim impact statement read to the court said Mr Abrey felt “gutted and lost and sick and drained” and was still angry with South Essex Homes for housing schizophrenic Troisi in the same block, despite complaints.As would anyone. So I should have a lot of sympathy, and yet...
Mr Abrey, a care professional who works with convicts struggling with mental health conditions and drug addictions, said the case was “preventable”.Yes, by locking him up forever. Right?
“I have been left wondering how someone with such dangerous tendencies could end up being anyone’s neighbour without being cared for.”'Because people like you advocate for people like him', perhaps..?
