London, July 28 (IANS) A schoolboy in Britain is facing life sentence for murdering his former girlfriend over a bet for a free breakfast.

Sixteen-year-old Joshua Davies was promised a full-cooked breakfast by a friend for carrying out his threat to murder his lover Rebecca Aylward, 15.

Davies and Rebecca had already split up but she visited him, hoping they would reconcile.

The schoolboy, however, had plotted to give her deadly foxgloves (flowers), drown her in a river or throw her off a cliff.

Rebecca even bought new clothes for the ‘date’, being unaware that Davies had been boasting to his friends how easy it would be to kill her, Daily Mail reported.

The murder trial heard how their teenage love affair turned into a love-hate relationship and finally culminating in a horrific murder.

Davies openly plotted to murder Rebecca by sending chilling text messages to his friends about his plans to do it.

In one such text messages to a friend, Davies wrote: “What would you do if I actually did kill her?”

The friend replied: “Oh, I would buy you breakfast.’

Two days ahead of carrying out the murder Davies messaged to the friend: “Don’t say anything but you may just owe me a breakfast.

Davies lured a cheerful and fun-loving Rebecca into woods where he battered her to death with a rock, the court heard.
