A Linmeyer teenager who was burnt in an apparent satanic ritual died of heart failure in the early hours of Friday morning.

Kirsty Theologo and her friend were doused with petrol and set alight last Friday.

She suffered severe injuries during the incident, including 75 percent burn wounds.

Her family said that they were shattered by the news.

Four young men were arrested for the attack. It is now likely that one of the double attempted murder charges they faced would be changed to murder.

The group is set to appear in court on Tuesday.
