Mark Bridger prison attack: Man appears in court
A MAN has appeared in court charged with attacking Mark Bridger, the man who murdered April Jones.
Juvinai Ferreira, 22, is accused of unlawfully and maliciously wounding Bridger in the prison where they are both inmates.
Ferreira appeared at Wakefield Magistrates’ Court in West Yorkshire via video accused of attacking 47-year-old Bridger on July 7.
Ferreira entered no pleas during the brief hearing and will remain in custody to appear at Leeds Crown Court on September 11.
Bridger is serving a whole life sentence for abducting and murdering five-year-old April last October.
April’s disappearance from outside her Machynlleth home sparked the biggest missing person search in UK police history.
Her body has never been found.
