Rikki Neave was just six years old when he was murdered and his body found near his home on the Welland estate
The killer of a six-year-old schoolboy who evaded justice for nearly three decades has been jailed for a minimum of 15 years.
Rikki Neave's naked body was found deliberately posed in a star shape near his Peterborough home the day after he disappeared in November 1994.
He had been strangled and, in April this year, James Watson, now 41 but 13 at the time, was convicted of murder.
At the Old Bailey, Watson was given a life sentence.
The judge, Mrs Justice McGowan, previously stated the minimum term in prison would reflect that Watson was a child when he killed Rikki.
He was the second person to stand trial for Rikki's murder, after the boy's mother Ruth Neave was cleared by a jury in 1996.
