Life for schoolboy murder

The appeal court has sentenced Julien C to life imprisonment for the murder of eight-year-old Jesse Dingemans in December 2006.

C, who stabbed Jesse to death in his primary school, was earlier given a 12-year sentence and a psychiatric prison term. The court said C should be detained for life because there was a real risk he would reoffend.
