Brianna Ghey teen killers WILL be named as sentencing date for brutal murder is revealed | The Sun

BRIANNA Ghey's teen killers will be unmasked when they are sentenced for murder next year.

The girl and boy, who were 15 at the time of the killing, were yesterday convicted over the 16-year-old's horrific death.

During the trial, they were legally only able to be named as X and Y due to their ages.

A judge has now ruled the reporting restrictions will be lifted when they are sentenced for murder on February 2.

Listing her reasons for naming the killers, Mrs Justice Yip said Brianna was murdered in a "particularly brutal way".

She also said the chilling texts exchanged between the pair displayed a "significant degree of planning".

The judge said waiting until the pair were 18 would be an "unreasonable and unreasonable restriction on the freedom of the press".

She added: "I am unable to conclude that there is a good reason to maintain reporting restrictions following the defendants' conviction and sentence."

X and Y were yesterday unanimously convicted of murder in just over four hours.

The evil pair lured Brianna to Linear Park in Warrington, Cheshire, then stabbed her 28 times.

She suffered "unsurvivable" injuries, including catastrophic blood loss after she was knifed in the back and chest.

X and Y had also penetrated Brianna's throat and lungs with the blade.

One stab wound reached a depth of 11cm and sliced through the teen's heart.

Brianna also had "defensive" wounds to her arms and hands where she desperately attempted to fight her attackers off.

The court was told "many" of the stab wounds damaged Brianna's bones and would have required "considerable force".

Prosecutor Deanna Heer KC said there was "no doubt she was the victim of a sustained and violent assault".

X and Y sent each other "snuff" videos downloaded from the dark web as they became "preoccupied with violence, torture and death".

This culminated in a "kill list" of five people they wanted to murder – including tragic Brianna.
