Thomas Cashman to be kept in isolation for his own safety after mobsters put £250k hit on Olivia Pratt-Korbel's killer | The Sun

THOMAS Cashman will be placed in prison isolation for his own protection. 

The gunman was today sentenced to life behind bars for the murder of nine-year-old Olivia Pratt-Korbel in Liverpool in August last year.

The Sun earlier revealed how gangsters have put a £250,000 bounty on his head amid fears he will shop other criminals. 

He is said to be "public enemy number one" inside Strangeways Prison in Manchester where he has spent the last few months. 

Following his sentencing at Manchester Crown Court, where he refused to appear in the dock, he faces time in isolation to keep him away from those wanting to harm him. 

One criminal in particular will be keeping an eye on the killer once inside.

Cashman has been linked to the unsolved murder of Karl Bradley, whose body was found covered in snow in a garden. 

Detectives believe the 31-year-old was shot dead when a stray bullet went through the window of a nearby house where two children were sleeping.

He is the brother of gangster Kirk Bradley, who is serving a life sentence for a wave of violent crime in Liverpool. 

A source told The Sun: "Cashman will be in isolation for a period of time for his own sake.

The jury also found him guilty of the attempted murder of Nee and two counts of possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life.

He must serve a minimum of 42 years.
