Schoolgirl who filmed herself 'trying to kill her parents' is cleared of attempted murder
A troubled schoolgirl who filmed herself as she tried to strangle her mother and then stab her father was today cleared of attempted murder.

After the jury delieverd its verdict Judge Gareth Hawkesworth told the 6-year-old he will do everything in his power to help her.

The girl was convicted of a charge of attempting to choke, suffocate and strangle her mother and attempting to unlawfully wound her father.Adjourning the case for reports the judge at Cambridge crown court told the jury it had been an "extraordinary and difficult case".

Addressing the eight men and four women but making sure his words could be heard by the girl, he said: "This court recognises that this young lady is in need of help and support and this court is going to do all in its power to bring that about"

He added: "This is not a case in my judgement where the only issue is punishment."

The girl was remanded to a secure psychiatric unit for teenagers until her sentence.

Before leaving court she was hugged by her mother and father who had been in the public gallery and who during the trial had given evidence against her.

It was following an argument with her father last February that the girl, then 15, came into the living room from her bedroom at the family's home.

She had with her a video recorder which she set up on the arm of a chair so that it was trained on her mum who was sitting at a computer.

The girl, described as highly intelligent and theatrical, with a keen interest in film making, drama and writing, had dressed herself especially for the occasion.

She was wearing a seductive strappy silk nightdress for what the prosecution was to describe in court as "the performance of her life."

She had brushed out her long brown hair and applied make up to make herself look glamorous film star.

The girl had with her a noose made from two dressing gown cords with which to strangle her mother and a pair of scissors to stab her father.

The chilling video was played to the jury at the start of the trial when she pleaded not guilty to two counts of attempting to murder her parents, both IT workers.

She also denied a charge of attempting to choke, suffocate or strangle her mother with intent and attempting to unlawfully wound her father with intent.

She has admitted two counts of common assault on her parents.
