Video: Convicted killer found guilty of murdering Milly Dowler

The convicted killer Levi Bellfield has been found guilty of abducting and murdering English schoolgirl Milly Dowler.

An Old Bailey jury found Bellfield guilty of abducting and murdering the 13-year-old after she walked past the killer's home.

Bellfield was also accused of attempting to abduct 11-year-old Rachel Cowles the day before in March 2002.

No verdict has been reached on that charge.

It took Milly's parents Bob and Sally nine years to get justice, even though her killer had been living 50 yards from where she was last seen in Station Avenue, Walton-on-Thames, Surrey.

Police knocked on the door of Bellfield's flat in Collingwood Place, off Station Avenue, 11 times, but did not try to contact the letting agent to trace him.
