Rebecca Aylward murder: Joshua Davies, 16, found guilty

A 16-year-old boy who battered his former girlfriend to death has been publicly named for the first time after being found guilty of her murder.

Rebecca Aylward, 15, from Maesteg, was lured into a wood in Aberkenfig, near Bridgend, in October 2010.

Swansea Crown Court heard Joshua Davies "sometimes" hated Rebecca and a friend offered to buy him breakfast after suggesting that he "get rid of her".

Ross Harries reports.
