Lindsay Birkbeck was brutally murdered and buried in a shallow grave by teenager Rocky Marciano Price aged 17.
Rocky was found guilty on Wednesday and has been sentenced today at Preston Crown Court. He has been sentenced to a minimum of 16 years in custody.
The 17 year old killed the mother of two in the woods in August last year, and it took jurors less than three hours to find him guilty.
The victim was wrapped in two plastic bags and dumped in a shallow grave in a cemetery near her home in Accrington, Lancashire.
When the verdict was announced, Price showed no emotion as he appeared via video link, nor did his parents in Preston Crown Court.
