The trial opened today of Mark Bridger who is accused of murdering five-year-old April Jones and the prosecutions opening speech contained some gory details, the whole thing sounds heinous, April's parents must be horrified and devastated at what the prosecution disclosed.

April vanished while playing on her bike near her home in Machynlleth, mid-Wales, on October 1 last year and her body has never been found.

In cases like this I do wonder how they manage to find a jury who can be wholly impartial.


OneFootInTheGrave Report 30 Apr 2013 15:27

The details turned my stomach, for that reason I did not post them on here, and I also think anyone, having heard the gruesome details, would not find it easy to be totally impartial.


AnnCardiff Report 30 Apr 2013 15:34

what a monster - I did not realise they had found part of April's skull in his house :-S


Paula+ Report 30 Apr 2013 15:43

Dear Lord, I have not read the report yet. God rest the soul of the poor little girl and give comfort to her parents.


AnnCardiff Report 30 Apr 2013 15:45

it was on BBC news just now - how can you recover from losing a child, however old, but one as young as this in such dreadful circumstances

Haven;'t got the words. :-(

I heard the news on the way back from shopping and thought I had misheard. I have no words to describe at this moment what I would like to do to that miserable low life scumbag.


GinN Report 30 Apr 2013 16:24

Oh! How really dreadfull. All I can say is that I hope her end was so swift that she didn't suffer. Her poor, poor parents, what must they be going through, it's unimagineable.


George Report 30 Apr 2013 16:33

If he's found guilty they should execute the bastard :-| :-| :-| :-|



OneFootInTheGrave Report 30 Apr 2013 17:01

I a not a great believer in capital punishment, however when I read about cases like this, I wish the death penalty had never been totally abolished, if he is found guilty he will probably end up in Broadmoor - methinks burnt at the stake would be more appropriate in this case.


Kay???? Report 30 Apr 2013 17:05

In-human,,,,,,,,a total monster who deserves to die behind prison walls if hes found guilty,,,,,,,he cant remember because doing so will prove beyond any doubt,

the facts being given in court must be killing her family.

I'm basically against capital punishment but in this instance I make an exception

GlitterBaby Report 30 Apr 2013 22:12

Did read the article and I think most people will have an idea of what he did with her body.

What ever sentence he gets he will not be liked by other prisoners


TootyFruity Report 30 Apr 2013 22:29

My heart goes out to April's family.

I agree GlitterBaby, most people will have an idea what has happened to April's body. My stomach turned after reading the details of the case.

Whatever sentence he gets will not be enough.
