Push for stricter sentencing in the Joshua Davies case

For those of you who may not know, the case of Joshua Davies was a brutal murder of a 15 year old girl, Rebecca Aylward.

Joshua conspired with friends for months on how he wanted to murder Rebecca. His friends offering him breakfast for going through with the murder and encouraged the act.

In addition to this, one of the boys involved even helped him concoct a deadly poison containing foxglove (as given in evidence in court) which he planned on poisoning Rebecca with. 

After suffering a bout of illness, Joshua Davies lured Rebecca into a forest under the pretenses that they would "re-enter a relationship". He then murdered Rebecca with a rock by striking her in the head repeatedly before sending messages to the accomplices saying they "may owe him breakfast" in addition to a phone call when asked if he was with Rebecca when he responded by laughing and asking them to define "with" (under the implication that she was there, but dead). 

Joshua Davies was sentenced to just 14 years for this brutal act, while his friends faced no punishment for their involvement in the murder.

In the words of Rebecca's mother, "They knew and encouraged him to kill her for months before and did nothing to prevent him or report it to the police before during or after the murder. It is in the public interest that these boys are held accountable for their actions." She also went on to say, "If they are allowed to get away with this they can go on to do this to another child."

Rebecca had a family, she was just 15 years old when she was brutally murdered. 

 

 

I recommend you also look at this petition by Rebecca's mother Sonia. It would not work for my postal code outside of the U.S.. It did not quite reach her goal, but I will be forwarding this petition to her.
