2003: Girl­friend killer


On 30 June 2003, Jodi Jones, 14, was sub­jected to a sav­age knife at­tack by her boyfriend Luke Mitchell, also 14, near Dalkeith in Scot­land.

Hours later, Mitchell took part in a search which ended in the dis­cov­ery of Jodi’s mu­ti­lated body.

In 2005, Mitchell, then 16, was found guilty of mur­der and la­belled ‘truly wicked’ by judge Nimmo Smith. He was sen­tenced to life in prison, to serve a min­i­mum of 20 years – he ap­pealed soon af­ter but it was re­jected.
