Murderer admits attacking Mark Bridger in prison
A MURDERER has admitted attacking child killer Mark Bridger in prison.
Juvinai Ferreira, 22, pleaded guilty to wounding Bridger when he appeared at Leeds Crown Court via video-link.
Bridger was sentenced to life in jail for murdering five-year-old April Jones after taking her from outside her home in Machyllneth.
Ferreira attacked the 47-year-old in Wakefield Prison.
No details of the attack were given in court. Ferreira will next appear at the court for sentencing on October 2.
At one point in the 20-minute hearing Ferreira, a convicted murderer, asked one of his guards: “I thought this was going to be quick?”
After Judge Christopher Batty told him the case was going to be adjourned, Ferreira said to him: "Can you just not sentence me? I can't keep coming back.
“Just give me anything and move on,” he said.
Ferreira was found guilty at Norwich Crown Court in 2009 of murdering Elaine Walpole in Dereham, Norfolk, in April 2008 and given a life term.
