Ben Blakeley found guilty of Jayden's murder to be sentenced

The boyfriend of Jayden Parkinson, who was found guilty of her murder yesterday, will be sentenced at Oxford Crown court later today.

Ben Blakeley, who is 22-years-old and from Reading, killed Jayden in the Oxfordshire countryside in December 2013.

After strangling the 17-year-old, he buried her in his uncles grave in a cemetery in Didcot.

A jury at Oxford Crown Court yesterday found Blakeley guilty of Jayden's murder, following a five-week trial by a majority of 11-1 after more then 20 hours of deliberations.
