The four relatives were killed earlier this year while walking to get ice cream from the local shops at Oatlands, in Sydney's north-west.

Samuel William Davidson, 29, was allegedly three times over the legal blood alcohol limit when he was behind the wheel of the car. He had a passenger with him in the car.

He has been charged with 20 offences, including four counts of manslaughter as well as dangerous driving occasioning death, dangerous driving occasioning grievous bodily harm, negligent driving, drink-driving and other offences.

Mrs Abdallah has also started a Facebook page, titled "The Four Angels", as a tribute to the children.
