Pic shows: Gary Clarence arrives at the Old Bailey today surrounded by legal advisers as his wife was sentenced for killing their three children.<br />
<br />
Tania Clarence, 42, the wife of an investment banker living in south-west London, will not now face trial and is due to be sentenced next month when she is likely to face a hospital order.<br />
<br />
Clarence, a mother-of-four, left three notes before allegedly smothering her four-year-old daughter, Olivia, and twin sons Ben and Max, aged three, while her husband, Gary, 43, was overseas. All three children had spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) type 2, a life-limiting progressive disease which can cause fatal respiratory problems.<br />
<br />
Clarence then tried to kill herself but was found by the family’s nanny and a neighbour.<br />
