THE teenager who stabbed Dinnington schoolgirl Leonne Weeks has been jailed for life.

Shea Heeley (19) appeared before Sheffield Crown Court this morning to be sentenced for the murder of 16-year-old Leonne Weeks, who he stabbed 
28 times in January last year before dumping her body behind a sofa on a pathway off Lordens Hill, Dinnington.

Heeley (left), of Doe Quarry Lane, Dinnington, admitted murder at Sheffield Crown Court last month.

Today he was jailed for life and ordered to serve a minimum of 24-and-a-half years, minus a year he has already served on remand.
