A mother whose daughter was battered to death by her ex-boyfriend has called for the return of capital punishment, saying the killer had 'forfeited his human rights'.
16-year-old Josh Davies was today sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder of Rebecca Aylward, 15, and told he will serve at least 14 years in prison.
Davies had lured Rebecca, of Maesteg, near Bridgend in south Wales, into a wood and smashed her skull in with a rock the size of a rugby ball, after a friend promised him a free breakfast if he killed the girl.
He then left his former girlfriend face-down in the rain wearing new clothes she had bought for their meeting.
