Widow's anger over killer's boast
A man jailed for life for murdering a man while trying to burgle his house has boasted on a social networking site about his relaxed life behind bars.
Mark Elliott, 22, was jailed with two others for stamping to death Mark Witherall, 47, in Whitstable, Kent.
But in a Facebook blog, he has spoken of how he spends time in the gym and playing computer games while locked up.
Mr Witherall's widow, Michelle, said putting things on the internet made "a mockery of the justice system".
Ms Witherall, 40, who had two children, aged 10 and 12, by her late husband, said prison was meant to be a punishment.
"He shouldn't be allowed proper access to the outside world but it seems he has had a mobile phone smuggled in for him to get on to the internet."
Writing under his street name, Hackman Hack, Elliott reportedly wrote: "U would love jail u could play ya computer all day long."

And in another message, he wrote: "Jus been gym, feel kinda hench."
A Prison Service spokesman said: "Prisoners cannot personally contribute to websites.
"They are not allowed to access the internet, except in exceptional circumstances and under strict supervision.
"We are unable to prevent third parties from publishing information on other people's behalf."
Elliott was convicted of Mr Witherall's murder in April last year along with Curtis Delima, 20, and Gerry Cusden, 17.
