Today, sentences of 48 years to Connor Chapman and 9 years to Thomas Waring have been passed for their killing of Elle Edwards and other crimes.
Councillors Lesley Rennie and Ian Lewis said:
“We welcome the sentences issued to those responsible for the senseless killing of Elle Edwards.
“Our thoughts today, like everyone in our local community, will be with Elle’s family, friends and colleagues. No family should experience what they have gone through since that fateful Christmas Eve.
“We would like to thank those members of our community who came forward with evidence, the officers of Merseyside Police who have worked tirelessly to secure this conviction and to the jury for their verdict.”
“The streets of Wallasey, and Wirral, are safer tonight thanks to their work.”
