An Australian woman whose brother was killed when the Malaysian Airlines jetliner vanished over the Indian Ocean in March also lost her stepdaughter to the plane that was downed over Ukraine, it has emerged.

The Associated Press reported that Kaylene Mann's brother Rod Burrows and sister-in-law Mary Burrows were on board Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 when it vanished in March. Mann found out Friday that her stepdaughter, Maree Rizk, was killed along with 297 others on Malaysia Airlines Flight 17.

"It's just brought everyone, everything back," said Greg Burrows, Mann's brother. "It's just … ripped our guts again."
