Threats really never help, and, though understandable, may make things worse. I really think the very likely cause is the recent loss of her sister --- kids stressed in such ways often regress to an earlier stage of development, and may start bedwetting or even soiling themselves for a short while. I wouldn't expect a physical reason to be likely ( other than if there is a urine infection, which little girls can catch fairly easily ) as she has already BEEN successfully dry for some time before this.
IN this situation you are all under a great deal of stress, and being soothing and supportive ti each other will help you all. TLC all round is needed and deserved. She is likely to regain control before long. And as Kay reminds me, pharmacies like Clicks sell packs of 20 Linen Protectors, like a flat nappy, that you can place between her and the sheets, that absorb a modest wetting, and limit the extent of the mess
