Files on the murder of the schoolgirl Milly Dowler, who disappeared seven years ago, have been passed to the Crown Prosecution Service, police said yesterday.

The convicted murderer Levi Bellfield, who is serving life for the murders of Marsha McDonnell, 19, and Amelie Delagrange, 22, is the prime suspect for the killing of Milly, 13, who went missing as she walked home from school in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey, on 21 March 2002.

At the time, Bellfield, 41, frequented the house of a former girlfriend who lived near the spot where Milly was last seen. He was interviewed about her murder four years ago but denied involvement. Six months later, her skeletal remains were found 30 miles away by mushroom pickers in Yateley, Hampshire.
