The twisted 14-year-old stepbrother of Logan Mwangi who helped his parents kill the five-year-old can finally be named, after he was sentenced for the brutal crime today.

Logan was found dead on July 31 last year in the River Ogmore near his home in Bridgend, south Wales with horrific injuries typically found in car crash victims.

The child, who suffered 56 external cuts and bruises, and “catastrophic” internal injuries, was discovered by police partially submerged, wearing dinosaur pyjama bottoms and a Spider-Man top.

On Thursday, at the end of a horrific murder trial that has shocked the nation, the judge who had presided over the trial, Mrs Justice Jefford, ruled that the boy was no longer entitled to anonymity.

Craig Mulligan aided stepmum Angharad Williamson, 31, and his own dad John 'Jay' Cole, 40, who were sentenced to life behind bars.

Due to his age, the courts slapped an anonymity order on stepbrother Mulligan, meaning the press could not reveal his true identity until today when the ban was finally lifted.

It can now be revealed that Mulligan was once described as "pure evil" by foster carers who looked after him weeks before Logan's death.

He had a history of "cruel" attacks on young children, vulnerable adults and small animals and was trained in martial arts.

Mulligan had previously been taken in by foster carers for eight weeks in June and July 2021 but they were unable to cope with his scary behaviour and he was allowed to return to Mwangi's home.

Bridgend Social Services were aware that the foster family had been unable to cope with his behaviour.

The family, who wish to remain anonymous, lived at home with one daughter.

They had always done long term fostering but they were asked by the council to take in the teen for two months.

However, depraved Mulligan soon showed his nasty side.

On his first night in the house, he showed their daughter a vape and a knife and they would regularly find knives hidden behind his pillows.

One foster carer said: "He was pure evil and enjoyed causing anxiety and fear. He knew no boundaries."

They said he was "just uncontrollable" and that "everything was killing” with him.

On one grim occasion, they took Mulligan to a local park and he was heard to say: "Shall we play murder and I will put you all in black bags?"

On another occasion they went to the cinema to watch In The Heights, the Lin Manuel Miranda musical set in New York, and the teen shouted out "Kill all the Jews!" at the top of his voice during the film.

One said: "Why didn't they pick up on [Logan] and put him with a lovely little family?"

“In my eyes I knew that he could do something like that, it was scary. You never knew what to do or say with him."

The teen would also repeatedly talk about how much he "hated" Logan and "wanted him dead".

A social worker was told of their misgivings but they were dismissed.

They said: "It was just horrendous. We were totally drained.”

Williamson was handed a minimum sentence of 28 years, while Cole will be jailed for a minimum term of 29 years.

Mulligan was sentenced to life detention with a minimum of 15 years.

Members of Logan’s family were present in the packed court room, presided over by Mrs Justice Jefford DBE.

In April the trio were found guilty of the child's murder. At the time Craig Mulligan couldn't be named for legal reasons.

Both Williamson and the youth were convicted of a further charge of perverting the course of justice – an offence Cole had admitted before trial.

All three pleaded not guilty to murder.

During that hearing, the court heard claims that just two days before Logan died, Cole had carried out a cowardly attack on the youngster with the help of the 14-year-old.

Williamson said: “He [Cole] called Logan out of his bedroom…sorry, he pulled him out in the hallway and tried to talk to him.

“Logan stuttered. I said: ‘Jay leave him alone’. He said: ‘I’ve had enough, he needs to talk to me’.

“He stuttered again and Jay punched him twice to the stomach, he fell on his bum and hit his elbows on the floor. I went forward and he blocked the way to the kitchen.

"He asked for [the youth] to come from the living room into the hallway and said: ‘If he flinches again or stutters sweep him’.

“He did and he pushed his head to the ground.”

In previous hearings, the court also learned of a vile song Craig Mulligan sang about harming children.

He was reportedly overheard by a care worker singing: “I love kids. I f****** love kids. I love to punch kids in the head. It’s orgasmic.”

The teen is also alleged to have later told another care worker: “I did some bad stuff but I am not allowed to talk about it.”
