What we know so far about Jordan Monaghan
Ruby and Logan were the children of Jordan Monaghan and his former fiancée Laura Gray.
Inquests had been held into the deaths of the two children at Blackburn Coroners’ Court in 2013.
Miss Gray, 20, went to wake Logan up from his afternoon nap and found him lying dead.
The inquest heard that the ambulance that arrived had battled desperately to save his life.
At the time Miss Gray had paid tribute to her relatives for helping her through the deaths.
She said: ‘We’d like to say a big thank you to all the family for all the support and help,’ she said. ‘We’re a close family. We’ve got great family support, they’re helping us to get through it.
‘We’re all absolutely distraught, absolutely devastated. We’re all shocked, we can’t believe it. He was beautiful, a little monkey, so mischievous. We strongly miss him and he will never be forgotten.
‘He had such a beautiful smile and he was the most gorgeous child ever. He was such a daddy’s boy and his face lit up every time he saw any of us.’
At the inquest, the coroner had said: ‘I can’t begin to imagine the loss of a child and certainly one as young and as precious as Ruby.’
