A 20 year-old woman from Staffordshire has been handed a life sentence for the murder of her 2 year-old daughter.
Boy, 13, Guilty Of Murdering Smethwick Woman
A 13-year-old boy has been found guilty of murdering a woman who died of a bleed on the brain after a street attack in Smethwick.
The boy, who cannot be named because of a court order, was found guilty of killing Glynis Bensley after a trial at Wolverhampton Crown Court.
A jury also convicted Zoheb Majid, 20, of Cheshire Road, Smethwick, of robbery and manslaughter.
Ms Bensley, 47, was on her way home from a pub in Smethwick in September last year when she was mugged and injured in Cheshire Road.
The victim was hit by the 13-year-old, making her fall to the ground, before he stamped on her face with such force that his footprint was left on her cheek.
Speaking after the jury returned its verdicts, Detective Chief Inspector Sam Ridding said: ``It was clearly the joint intention of the pair to use violence on anyone they targeted.
``Ms Bensley was tragically in the wrong place at the wrong time.''
Both defendants will be sentenced at the same court on April 17.
