                        \"\"A 17 year old boy, Rocky Marciano Price, has been jailed for life after he brutally murdered a teacher and mum, Ms Lindsay Birkbeck, 47 and buried her body in a cemetery. Rocky Price killed Lindsay Birbeck and transported her naked lifeless body in a waste bin to a shallow grave at a cemetery in Accrington. Rocky Marciano Price, who was unnamed previously due to reporting restrictions, was found guilty of murder on Wednesday before being sentenced today Friday August 14 at Preston crown court. \"\" The court agreed that Rocky Price intended to kill or severely injure the mum-of-two in the woods in Accrington, Lancashire, in August 2020. According to the court ruling, he must serve a minimum of 16 years in custody.  In court documents,  Price attacked Mrs Birbeck, in the woods close to her home, placed her body in plastic bags and later moved her body in the bin to Accrington Cemetery where he buried her in a shallow grave.              \"\"  Twelve days after she went missing, a huge search by police and members of the community discovered her lifeless body wrapped in two plastic bags on August 24, 2020. According to court documents, Mrs Birkbeck had gone for an evening walk to a nearby wooded area on August 12 2020. Her daughter, Sarah, and her boyfriend started raising alarm bells when they noticed she didn't return home.Her body was later found naked and heavily decomposed in the cemetery by a dog walker known as Morgan Parkinson. According to the court documents, Morgan's pet started ‘sniffing at the bushes’ and when he went closer he ‘stood on something soft and squishy’ and he ‘smelt a horrible smell’.  Police later identified the decomposed body as Mrs Birkbeck from her dental records.  Rocky Price, admitted to prosecutors that he dragged the bin carrying her lifeless body but claimed he was not involved in her death.According to Price, a mystery man had approached him in the area with the promise of a large cash reward if he disposed of the body. Later footage was released to the media on August 27 of 2020 showing the teenager pulling the waste bin. He was identified by ‘shocked’ school teachers and later arrested by police. \"\" Trial judge Mrs Justice Yip told the court: ‘This was a dreadful crime which understandably generated strong public interest. ‘The public will naturally want to know who this person was as they come to terms with something that rocked the local community.’   According to a Home Office pathologist who carried out a post-mortem examination, severe compressive force seemed to have been used on her neck, which could have been done in several ways including through stamping or kicking, or kneeling on the front of the neck.  .-mortem examination concluded the cause of death was neck injuries. When the verdict was announced, Price showed no emotion as he appeared via video link due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Even his parents did not show any emotion as he was sentenced to life imprisonment today at the hearing. During the sentencing this morning, Judge Yip added: ‘I have no doubt the murder was significantly remediated.  ‘He formed the intent to kill a woman. I find he was deliberately targeting lone women‘The attack was swift and brutal. I’m sure the defendant lay in wait with the intent to kill a passing woman.". 17-year-old boy jailed for life killing teacher whose body he buried in shallow grave Follow Linda Ikeji Blog.

News Update?Osun Governorship Election Petition Tribunal Sitting Begins October 26

Latest Politics updatein nigeria

Osun State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal will on October 26 begin a full hearing of the petition filed by Governor Adegboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress (APC) against the declaration of Senator Ademola Adeleke as governor-elect.

Lifestyle Nigeria reports that the tribunal made this pronouncement after concluding the pre-hearing session on Thursday.

The tribunal was asked to dismiss the applications of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), seeking the discontinuation of the petition brought to it by Governor Oyetola.

Counsel for Oyetola and the APC, Lasun Sanusi, SAN, at the sitting of the tribunal argued that Adeleke’s, PDP’s and INEC’s reliance on a Federal Court High judgment was nothing but an abuse of court process.

Sanusi argued this while replying to separate applications of the trio, seeking the dismissal of the petition based on the already appealed Federal High Court judgment disqualifying Oyetola from contesting the election.

Citing Supreme Court decisions in the case of Jegede Vs INEC, 2021, 14NWLR, Pt 1797, page 409, the counsel said the court had ruled that the signatories to the letter conveying the nomination of a candidate were not the nominators; rather, the nomination was done by party members at the congress, hence, the judgment could not stand.

Meanwhile, the counsel for INEC, Prof. Paul Ananaba, SAN; counsel for Adeleke, Onyechi Ikpeazu, SAN and counsel for the PDP, Dr. Alex Izinyon, SAN, agreed that any decision the tribunal would take on the matter would have to wait until the Appeal Court and the Supreme Court decided on it.

They noted that they just decided to argue the applications to have it on record, a position which the tribunal agreed with and put on record.

Also, in other applications totalling nine by the three respondents, they asked the tribunal to strike out some paragraphs of the petition on the grounds that they were either lumped together or not related to the 2022 election.

In response to each of the applications, Sanusi said all the cases cited by the respondents were misconceived, adding that they were not applicable in the instance case.

He cited the case of INEC Vs Otti, 2016, 8NWLR, where the Supreme Court hinted that INEC was supposed to be neutral, arguing that all the processes filed before the panel have not portrayed the commission’s neutrality.

Sanusi further argued that the applications filed by the respondents were only meant to prevent the tribunal from focusing on hearing the petition on merit, asking the panel to dismiss the applications.

Subsequently, counsel for all parties in the matter agreed to begin the full hearing starting with the calling of witnesses on October 26.

In his ruling, the tribunal declared the pre-hearing session concluded and announced that the pre-hearing conference report would be presented on October 17.
