Fiona Gray lived in a luxury house with her husband and two small sons yet she burnt the property down. The Prosecution assert this was an act of pure malice after he discovered that she had been having an affair with art tutor Gilbert Brinsley. The Defence do not deny she set fire to the house but argue she was in a state of automatism at the time, did not know what she was doing, and is therefore innocent. They say her mind had been unbalanced by a troubled childhood and her husband's negativity towards her. Written by Alan Briscoe
