Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A TEENAGE killer who filmed the butchered body of his el­derly vic­tim af­ter stab­bing him 72 times has been jailed for a min­i­mum of 28 years.

Bled­dyn King, 18, made a chill­ing sound­track on the two-minute video say­ing,“You f*** with me and you f*** with the best”.

King used his mo­bile phone to film the scene where he killed gar­dener David Evans, 63, in his own home in a quiet vil­lage in a blun­dered rob­bery.

He planned to show it to peo­ple he owed money to.

Cardiff Crown Court heard King also stabbed Mr Evans’ cat Jess to death be­fore torch­ing his bun­ga­low in the vil­lage of Pentyrch, near Cardiff.

Pass­ing sen­tence, Mr Jus­tice MacDuff said: “You punched, cut and stabbed him to death. It was a vi­cious, bru­tal at­tack – the fear and pain he must have felt in his dy­ing min­utes is unimag­in­able.

“It is wicked­ness be­yond com­pre­hen­sion – you are evil and dan­ger­ous.”
