The judge overseeing the Brianna Ghey murder case has lifted a court order preventing the identification of her killers, with their names and faces being revealed for the first time today:
We’ve also got footage of the moment the two teenagers, who were just 15 when they lured Brianna Ghey to her death, were arrested:
Scarlett Jenkinson and Eddie Radcliffe stabbed Brianna Ghey 28 times in the head, neck and chest after inviting her out for a walk. The plan to kill Brianna was laid out in one of Scarlett’s handwritten notes later found in her bedroom after she was arrested.
It read: ‘Meet Eddie at wooden posts 1pm. Walk down to library … bus stop. Wait until Brianna gets off bus then the three of us walk to linear park. Go to the pipe/tunnel area. I say code word to Eddie. he stabs her in the back as I stab her in the stomach. Eddie drags the body into the area. We both cover up the area with logs etc.’
Jenkinson and Ratcliffe will be sentenced to life later this afternoon, but the judge still has to decide on the minimum terms they must serve. I’ve got a feeling both of them are in for a rough ride in prison, no matter how long they end up serving. Which is just about the minimum level of justice you can hope for, I suppose.
RIP Brianna Ghey and thoughts with her friends and family.
