Judge lifts ban on naming of teenage murderer of Alesha MacPhail

The teenager who raped and murdered a six-year-old girl in Scotland has been named. Aaron Campbell, who’s 16, was found guilty at the High Court in Glasgow yesterday.

He’d previously had his identity concealed because he was under 18, but the judge today lifted the restriction saying he couldn’t think of a case which had ‘attracted such revulsion.’

A warning, Keme Nzerem’s report includes details of the crimes, which some viewers may find distressing.
