Prisoner attacked Mark Bridger "to make him reveal where April's body is hidden"
A PRISONER attacked child killer Mark Bridger in jail to try to get him to reveal where April Jones's body was hidden, a court has heard.
Convicted murderer and rapist Juvinal Ferreira, 24, slashed Bridger with a knife made out of a razor blade at the prison in Wakefield where they were both inmates in July.
Ferreira, who had admitted wounding with intent at a previous hearing, was today given a life sentence for the jail attack.
Leeds Crown Court heard that Ferreira and other life prisoners had talked about attacking Bridger to make him reveal the whereabouts of five-year-old April’s body.
In May Bridger, 47, was jailed for life for abducting and murdering the Machynlleth schoolgirl on October 1 last year.
Despite the biggest missing person search in British police history, April’s body has never been found.
