A COURT has today lifted the anonymity of the two 15-year-olds who caused the death of Northolt widow Paula Castle.
The pair have been named as Jiervon Bartlett and Nayed Hoque, who knocked their 85-year-old victim and snatched her bank cards in a street robbery last November.
Both were initially charged with murder but pleaded guilty to manslaughter shortly before they were due to go on trial.
At the Old Bailey, Mr Justice Fulford branded them a danger to the public as he handed them extended sentences and lifted a ban on revealing their identities.
He said: "The killing of Mrs Castle was a particularly despicable offence. It was markedly serious in my view and detestable given her so obvious frailty."
Bartlett and Hoque will each be on licence for seven years when they are released from their three-year spells in youth detention.
Bartlett, of Sentinel Close, Northolt, and Hoque, of Wentworth Mews, Bow, east London, both admitted manslaughter and two counts of robbery.
The court heard how the youths had used Paula Castle's bank cards to buy takeaways, mobile phone top-ups and Nike trainers.
