Sydney shopkeeper Adeel Khan has been found guilty of the manslaughter of a woman and her baby who died in a fire that Khan deliberately lit in 2014, ABC reports.

Last week, 46-year-old Khan was found guilty of murdering Chris Noble who lived above his convenience store.

The jury found him not guilty of murdering Bianka O'Brien and her son Jude but guilty of their manslaughter.

Ms O'Brien and her baby lived in a separate neighbouring unit above the shop.

The finding comes after Khan was earlier found guilty of murdering another man who lived directly above the convenience store which Khan set fire to.
