A teenager convicted of killing a British tourist at a highway service area in Florida two years ago was yesterday jailed for life.

John "Billy Joe" Crumitie, 18, was convicted in September of the first- degree murder of Gary Colley, 34, of Bradford, West Yorkshire. Mr Colley's girlfriend, Margaret Jagger, 37, was wounded in the bungled robbery near Monticello.

Deron "Lowlife" Spear, 19, who drove a stolen car from the scene, was jailed for eight years. A third youth who police believe fired the fatal shot and who has admitted second degree murder will be sentenced later.
