A boy who is the six-year-old Alesha MacPhail in a beastly way & # 39; killed, could be identified on Friday.
The 16-year-old is sentenced to life imprisonment for having been found guilty of raping and murdering the youngster while visiting her grandparents on holiday.
Judge Lord Matthews told him that he had committed some of the "worst, most evil crimes this court has ever heard."

The boy can not currently be identified for legal reasons as he is under the age of 18, but the judge will consider requesting media to lift the court order.
The teenager took Alesha MacPhail from the bed where she slept on the Isle of Bute last year on July 2 and suffered horrendous injuries before her body was dumped in the forest.
A jury at the Supreme Court in Glasgow took three hours to declare the boy guilty after a nine-day trial.
In a statement from Police Scotland, Alesha's family said: "We can not believe that we will never see our little angel Alesha again. We miss her so much.
We hope that the boy who has taken her from us is imprisoned for a long time because of what he did to our family. & # 39;
The boy will be sentenced separately on 21 March.

In a statement from Police Scotland following the verdict, the Alesha family said: "We can not believe that we will never see our little angel Alesha again. We miss her so much.
We hope that the boy who has taken her from us is imprisoned for a long time because of what he has done to our family.
Alesha may have disappeared from our lives, but she will always be in our hearts. & # 39;
Her mother, Georgina Lochrane, said: "Words can not express how devastated I am to have lost my beautiful, happy little girl.

I am glad that the boy who did this has finally been brought to justice and that he can not bring the pain to another family he has done to mine.
"Alesha, I love you so much, my little friend. I will miss you forever. & # 39;

Pathologist John Williams told the court that Alesha had 117 individual injuries and a postmortem examination that he performed, pointed out that she had died of significant and powerful pressure on her neck and face & # 39 ;.
He agreed that the injuries to her private parts are catastrophic & # 39; were – more serious than what he had ever seen before – and were at least partially inflicted while she was still alive.
The defendant gave evidence and said that he & # 39; Alesha MacPhail had never personally met & # 39; and denied that he was kidnapping, raping and murdering her.

When asked if he had mistreated her & # 39 ;, he said: & I am not, absolutely not. I would never do such a thing. & # 39;
Asked if his & # 39; DNA is all over her & # 39; because he killed and raped her, he said: & # 39; No & # 39 ;.

A forensic scientist told the court that the DNA agreement with the accused was found on the body and clothing of Alesha, with some examples that were at odds with a billion to one of his own.
The teenager had filed a special defense of the accusation and accused Toni McLachlan, the partner of Alesha's father Robert, or Rab, MacPhail for Alesha's death.
The court heard that the couple sold cannabis to the accused.
McLachlan gave evidence that she was not responsible for the death of the schoolgirl because she said she loved her.
Lord Matthews told the teenager: "I have no idea why you did this, but I do know that the evidence you did it was overwhelming."
