New light is being thrown on the brutal murder of a family near Helston twelve years ago.

Lee Ford killed his wife Lesley and her four children in Carnkie.

On Wednesday night a documentary on the Crime and Investigation Network investigates the background to the case.

In it psychologists claim a relationship with his step-daughter was actually abuse.

The bodies of the five members of his family were found weeks after Mr Ford, a removal worker, disappeared from the family home.

Three were discovered in a shed in the back garden of the bungalow and the other two were found in a nearby field.

At the time Bristol Crown Court was told that he was having a relationship with his seventeen year old step daughter, Sarah Jane.

But tonight experts will say that it is more likely to have been abuse and draw a link with the domestic violence he was also responsible for.

Psychologist Emma Kenny tells Britain's Darkest Taboos: "That was an abuse of his power. He would have groomed Sarah Jane to embark on that relationship with him. We know from research there's a clear correlation between child abuse and domestic abuse in homes. Here we have Ford as both a domestic abuse perpetrator and as an abuser against Sarah Jane."

You can watch Britain’s Darkest Taboos tonight at 10pm on Crime & Investigation, Sky 553 or Virgin 242.
