THE mother of Alesha MacPhail has penned a heartbreaking tribute to her “princess” daughter after the six-year-old was brutally murdered.
Alesha MacPhail was snatched from her bed on the Isle of Bute last July, with 16-year-old Aaron Campbell facing life behind bars for the little girl’s rape and murder.

Mum Georgina Lochrane, 24, sat through the devastating trial – breaking down in tears as she left Glasgow High Court after the sick teen was found guilty of killing her daughter.
The Daily Record today reported the mum penned a heartbreaking message to her daughter online, writing: “We had the hardest two weeks of our lives, being dragged through a trial, having to listen to what was said.
“But you stayed in mummy’s heart and we did it, my lassie.
“That boy will never hurt anyone ever again or have the chance to inflict what he did to you on any other child.
“You’re mummy’s strong, beautiful, bubbly little princess.
“I made you a promise that I won’t give up until you see justice done and I hope we did it right, angel. You are unconditionally loved and missed Alesha and now you can be at peace my girl.”
Campbell was last week revealed as the warped killer of little Alesha, with the Slender Man-obsessed teen found guilty of inflicting “catastrophic” injuries on the little girl.

Details of his personality were exposed last week as a judge took the extraordinary step of lifting reporting restrictions, with it revealed sadistic Campbell was a cat-skinning monster desperate for fame on YouTube with a warped interest in gory video games.
The depraved teenager was said to be “hooked” on the creepy fictional character Slender Man as he worked on a haunting plan to turn his “fantasy into a horrific reality”.
In a sinister echo of Campbell’s real-life crime, Slender Man kidnaps and traumatises youngsters.
Investigators have since revealed their fears he could have been a serial killer in the making who would have struck again.
During his trial, the coward killer tried worming his way out of his horrific crime by spinning a twisted web of lies in an attempt to pin it on Toni McLachlan – the girlfriend of Alesha’s dad.
He even blamed his own mum, who shopped him to cops when she saw CCTV of her son disappearing into the night to abduct Alesha.
But the fiend was caught out, found guilty of grabbing Alesha from her bed after she fell asleep watching a Peppa Pig DVD.

Horrifically, she suffered “catastrophic” sexual injuries both before and after her death after the teenager “brutalised” her.
“Billion-to-one” DNA samples matching the boy were found on 14 different parts of Alesha’s body – including intimate areas and her neck, face and ankles – and her clothing.
Alesha’s mutilated and naked body was found in woods on the Isle of Bute hours later after her devastated family woke up to find she was missing.
