Friday 26th January 1994,  Hatch was jailed for the murder of seven-year-old Sean Williams in Finchley, north London.
Sentencing him at the Old Bailey, the judge said: ‘In my judgment, you should never be released back into the community while there remains the slightest danger you will re-offend.’
The jury of six men and six women rejected Hatch's plea of guilty to a lesser charge of manslaughter and his defence that he was driven to attack Sean by a compulsion over which he had no control. 
The prosecution claimed Hatch had planned to murder Sean after sexually assaulting him.
February 2011, Hatch was killed by fellow inmate Damien Fowkes at HMP Frankland. Fowkes also attempted to kill child murderer Ian Huntley.
