Teen jailed for life for killing teacher and burying her in shallow grave

17-year-old Rocky Marciano Price has been jailed for life after being found guilty of the murder of a mother of two, Lindsay Birbeck.

Birbeck, who died from neck injuries inflicted by either stamping or kicking or kneeling on the front of the neck, was buried in a shallow grave at a Lancashire cemetery.

The 47-year-old’s remains were found wrapped in two plastic bags in Accrington Cemetery on August 24 last year, 12 days after she went for an afternoon walk in the woods and went missing.

Price was convicted of her murder and jailed for life after a jury unanimously rejected his account that a mystery man had offered him a large cash reward if he disposed of a body.

Birbeck’s daughter added: “All our lives are completely ruined, and I don’t see how we will ever recover as a family as the void that has been left will never be filled,” Daily Times gathered.
