Aaron Campbell gets life in prison for raping and killing Alesha MacPhail, 6 SUBSCRIBE: https://youtu.be/nE2uhv-ZCSw : Aaron Campbell, 16, was sentenced for the twisted abduction, rape and murder of six-year-old Alesha MacPhail.
Campbell told her he was ‘taking her home’ as he carried her away to her death.
Aaron Campbell, 16, took Alesha from her bed on the Isle of Bute in Scotland before leading her into woodland and carrying out the horrific sex attack.
Campbell admitted the rape and murder for the first time ahead of being sentenced for his sickening crimes today.
Details of his confession were read to the court, in which he said Alesha had woken up in his arms as he carried her away from her family’s holiday home at 2am.
He told the tragic six-year-old he was a friend of her dad’s and ‘taking her home’ before removing her clothing and subjecting her to a prolonged ordeal which left her with 117 injuries.
The cold-hearted killer then smothered her to death and dumped her body.
Sentencing Campbell to a life jail term, with a minimum of 27 years, Judge Lord Matthews said: “Your attitude was clearly demonstrated by the image you posted in a mirror while joking you had found the killer.
“Your arrogance was breathtaking. Not once during the trial did I detect a flicker of emotion from you…”
