The mum of tragic murdered schoolgirl Alesha MacPhail has posted a heartbreaking message to her daughter.
Georgina Lochrane said Alesha can now be "at peace" after her killer was jailed.
The six-year-old was found murdered and raped by evil teen Aaron Campbell on the Isle of Bute last July.
He was found guilty at Glasgow High Court last week and will be sentenced next month.
Posting on Facebook, Georgina wrote: “We had the hardest two weeks of our lives, being dragged through a trial, having to listen to what was said.
“But you stayed in mummy’s heart and we did it, my lassie.
“That boy will never hurt anyone ever again or have the chance to inflict what he did to you on any other child.
“You’re mummy’s strong, beautiful, bubbly little princess.
“I made you a promise that I won’t give up until you see justice done and I hope we did it right, angel.
“You are unconditionally loved and missed Alesha and now you can be at peace my girl.”
Campbell abducted six-year-old Alesha from her bed where she was sleeping last July and inflicted “catastrophic” injuries on her.
She suffered 117 injuries and died from significant pressure to her face and neck. Campbell dumped her naked body in woods.
The teenager was convicted on Thursday and Lord Matthews lifted a ban on naming Campbell due to his age on Friday, saying: “I can’t think of a case in recent times that has attracted such revulsion.”
A source close to the case branded the teenager a “serial killer who was caught on his first killing”, as his love of gory video games and violent movies came to light.
