A boastful 13-year-old boy has been jailed for a minimum of 11 years for the murder of a woman mugged as she walked home from the pub.
Petri Kurti was ordered to be detained at Her Majesty's Pleasure - the equivalent of a minimum term life sentence for a youth, by Judge John Warner at Wolverhampton Crown Court today.
He was named following a ruling by the judge to lift reporting restrictions.
Judge Warner said that he had been described afterwards as "boastful and not caring less" but also later "crying, saying you had not meant to do it".
His victim Glynis Bensley was punched by the youngster and, as she went to the pavement, he stamped on her head on September 3, last year.
Co-accused Zoheb Majid, 20, of Cheshire Road, Smethwick, in the West Midlands, was jailed for 10 years following his conviction for Ms Bensley's manslaughter, and a seven-year concurrent sentence for robbery.
