‘EastEnders’ Actress Sian Blake’s Boyfriend Admits to Killing Her and Their Children

The 43-year-old actress was found dead at her London home in January, along with Zachary, 8, and Amon, 4

The boyfriend of slain “EastEnders” actress Sian Blake has admitted to killing her, as well as their two children, the BBC reported Friday.

The attorney for Arthur Simpson-Kent said that the jury would be told of his admission during his trial in October. Simpson-Kent has not yet entered a formal plea.

Blake, 43, and her children Zachary, 8, and Amon, 4, were found dead at their London home in January. They were reported missing in mid-December.

According to police, the three had died from “head and neck injuries.”

Simpson-Kent, 48, who was arrested at Heathrow Airport following his extradition to Ghana, will likely enter his plea July 29.

Blake, who played Frankie Pierre on the long-running BBC soap from 1996 and 1997, disappeared after speaking to detectives on Dec. 16. Her body, along with those of her children, were found during excavations in the garden of their family home.

The British actress had been diagnosed with a motor-neuron disease, which damages the nervous system and the cells that control voluntary muscles of the body.
