Charlie John Pearce: 17-year-old rapist who tried to murder victim …

A judge has ruled that a 17-year-old rapist who attempted to murder a woman with a paving slab in a Leicester park can be named as Charlie John Pearce.

Jurors took just over three hours to convict the youth after hearing how he had searched for internet videos depicting the rape of “helpless” women in the weeks leading up to the attack.

A three-day trial at Leicester Crown Court was told the victim was left for dead in undergrowth in the city’s Victoria Park – and only found when a passing cyclist spotted a pool of blood.

Although he denied any intention to kill the woman, Pearce admitted two counts of rape, causing grievous bodily harm with intent, and stealing the victim’s handbag, which he later tried to burn.

While claiming through lawyers that he struck the victim to render her unconscious rather than kill, the boy refused to go into

Serial killer Levi Bellfield ‘admitted’ double murder to Cornish rapist Richard Baker

One of Britain’s most notorious serial killers made a “very detailed” confession to the brutal hammer murders of a mother and daughter, according to a Cornish rapist serving a life sentence for a string of sex attacks.

Michael Stone is serving three life sentences for bludgeoning Lin Russell and her daughter Megan, six, to death in an attack near Chillenden in Kent in 1996 in which her other daughter, Josie, nine, suffered severe head injuries and the family’s dog, Lucy, was killed.

But now lawyers representing Stone, 57, who has always maintained his innocence, said Levi Bellfield allegedly made a confession, which included details not made public, to another prisoner.

But Bellfield, who is serving two whole life prison sentences for murdering two women and schoolgirl Milly Dowler, 13, has denied making any such confession, saying in audio from behind bars that his accuser is a “known fantasist”.

“I was like, ‘Oh! Okay… right, interesting.’ Hopefully viewers will be surprised as well, which is what you want. We do end on a sort of cliffhanger,” she told TV magazine.

Fans were mixed in their reactions that Andrew finally faced his comeuppance, but questioned whether Laura or DI Vanessa Harmon (Shelley Conn) were now murderers.
