I am not surprised. Even before the trial started the case seemed to lack the beyond reasonable doubt element to it.
And informed sources who actually sat through the entire six weeks were adamant the verdict would be not guilty.
The Police have made it clear they will not be charging anyone else, so the sad thing is the killer of the twins has got away with it – whoever they may be.
Having a suspicious nature, and remembering how the family refused to co-operate with the Police, I do wonder whether there was a deliberate strategy to have both parents blame each other – knowing that would generate reasonable doubt for both.
