Lilia Valutyte, Nine, Was Stabbed To Death By A Lithuanian Fruit Picker, 22

A Lithuanian fruit picker has been charged with killing nine-year-old Lilia Valutyte and has been remanded in custody after making his first court appearance.

Deividas Skebas, 22, spoke only to verify his name, date of birth and address during a brief hearing at Lincoln Magistrate’s Court.

Deividas Skebas, of Boston, who held his head bowed throughout the hearing, will appear at Lincoln Crown Court later today.

Deividas Skebas, who was sporting a grey tracksuit, was told by District Judge Peter Deits that the offence he was facing was the most severe crime anyone could face in court.

Lilia was stabbed to death as she played with her sister in a quiet alley outside her mother’s embroidery shop near the hub of Boston at about 6.20 pm last Thursday.

Skebas was held on Saturday when armed officers surrounded a nearby house just four hours after Lincolnshire Police released CCTV footage of a man seen in the area shortly before the stabbing.

She was discovered with a stab wound in Fountain Lane at 6.20 pm and couldn’t be saved despite the actions of medics.

He was arrested on Saturday afternoon at his home in a Victorian semi-detached house only 200 yards from where Lilia died.

Skebas, of Boston, was charged with murder on Sunday evening and appeared before Lincoln Magistrate’s Court.

His ex-girlfriend Beata Sapuskaite, 23, said Skebas was from an upper-class family of business people and had gone to the United Kingdom to work before returning to Lithuania due to health issues.

She told a newspaper outlet that he was studying in Lithuania and came to England for farming work and that he moved back to Lithuania but came back to Boston recently.

Skebas arrived at court in a prison van shortly before 9 am and was held in a cell until he was taken up to the glass-fronted dock in Court Six.

The suspect, who was sporting a grey t-shirt and grey tracksuit trousers, remained standing as he confirmed his date of birth in December 1999 and his address in Boston.

He then sat down, looking at the floor as the charge was read out by the court clerk.

Prosecutor Marie Stace requested for the case to be sent to Lincoln Crown Court, and confirmed that the court had room for a hearing that afternoon.

District Judge Peter Viets remanded him in custody to appear again at 2 pm at Lincoln Crown Court.

This was a waste of life by a complete and utterly selfish, disturbed person, who has with one action destroyed his whole life and he will hopefully spend the remainder of his days living with this enormous guilt, shame and sorrow.

This was a beautiful and innocent 9-year-old girl who had her whole life ahead of her and what a wicked world this has become.

Sadly, there’s not enough of a deterrent in this country for any of the offences committed and our judges need to get their heads out of the sand, and I wonder what they might do if this sort of thing happened to their family?

Yet again another innocent child was slaughtered. What a country we’ve become, and it’s bad all over the United Kingdom. It’s about time something was done about it because something needs to happen to stop all these knife crimes and innocent children being slaughtered out on our streets.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
