Tia Sharp's mother has told ITV Stuart Hazell deserves to suffer.
He was jailed today for at least 38 years for killing the 12-year-old last summer.
In an exclusive interview, Tia's mother, who once dated Hazell before her mother got into a relationship with him, said she never suspected him.
The judge said Hazell's change in plea had robbed the family of finding out what happened to Tia the night she was killed, and that 'all that lay ahead of her, will now never be.'
From the Old Bailey, Ronke Phillips reports.
Stuart Hazell, 37, changed his plea to guilty in the murder trial of schoolgirl Tia Sharp claiming her 'family have suffered enough'.
Jayne Lee claims the abuse continued for five years, but she didn't say anything because she thought no one would believe her.
The man accused of killing schoolgirl Tia Sharp today admitted her murder on the fifth day of his trial at the Old Bailey.
