Two British girls brutally murdered a 39-year-old woman and posted chilling pictures on Snapchat before asking cops to drive them home, prosecutors charge.
The girls, aged 13 and 14 at the time, “were laughing and joking” and in “high spirits” in the police van on the trip home after inflicting at least 100 injuries on Angela Wrightson, a court heard, according to the Guardian.
The teens are accused of using a wooden stick, a TV set, a computer printer and a coffee table in their vicious assault on Wrightson as she begged for them to stop, the paper reported Wednesday.
The body of Wrightson was found half-naked on a sofa in her Hartlepool home in December of 2014. The girls, who are not being identified, are on trial in Leeds Crown Court. They deny killing Wrightson.
