Lindsay Hawker case verdict gives 'some closure'
A former head of a secondary school attended by Lindsay Hawker who was murdered in Japan, says he is delighted the family have got "some sort of closure" after her killer was jailed for life.
Tatsuya Ichihashi, 32, had admitted killing and raping the English teacher, but denied murdering her at his home close to Tokyo.
Miss Hawker, 22, was found dead in 2007 in a sand-filled bathtub.
George Fisher, retired head of King Henry VIII School in Coventry, said Lindsay had many friends.
