Man guilty of murdering and raping schoolgirl Lucy McHugh
Care worker Stephen Nicholson has been found guilty of the "execution-style" murder of schoolgirl Lucy McHugh who he killed to prevent her revealing his year-long abuse of her.
The 25-year-old showed no emotion as he was convicted at Winchester Crown Court of the murder of the 13-year-old as well as three counts of rape when she was aged 12.
Nicholson was also found guilty of sexual activity with a child in relation to another girl in 2012, who was aged 14.
He was acquitted of a charge of sexual activity with a child on multiple occasions when Lucy was aged 13.
