The teenager who murdered teacher Ann Maguire has been handed a life sentence.
Will Cornick was 15-years-old when he stabbed to death Mrs Maguire, 61, as she taught a class at Corpus Christi Catholic College, in Leeds, in April.
Cornick, now 16, admitted murder today and the judge at Leeds Crown Court, Mr Justice Coulson, lifted an order banning his identification.
The judge said he had shown a ‘chilling lack of remorse’ and ordered him to serve at least 20 years.

The court heard how Cornick wrote on Facebook that his teacher ‘deserves more than death, more than pain and more than anything that we can understand’.
Prosecutor Paul Greaney QC when asked about the impact on Mrs Maguire’s family, Cornick replied: ‘I know the victim’s family will be upset but I don’t care.
‘In my eyes, everything I’ve done is fine and dandy.’
