A WOMAN has been charged with murdering a brother and sister in a cold case dating back to 2004.

The woman, now aged 34, is accused of murdering siblings April and Ian Bailey in May 2004 in Deception Bay.

Their bodies were found in their burnt-out home on May 28.

The woman was arrested on Saturday morning and charged later that afternoon.
