THE grieving brother of murdered teen Bernadette Walker says his jailed mum "got what she deserved" as he vowed to never see or speak to his "wicked" killer stepdad again.
Anthony Walker, 19, said evil Scott Walker will "go to his grave" hiding the secret of where Bernadette's body is buried – despite being jailed for life on Friday.
He killed photography student Bernadette, 17, in July last year after she accused him of sexually abusing her.
Tragically the body of the teen, who if alive would now be 18 and an adult – has never been found after Walker spun a web of lies to dupe police.
His former partner Sarah Walker, 38 – mum to the two siblings – was caged for six years for perverting the course of justice.
Anthony, speaking after the double sentencing at Cambridge Crown Court, said: “I’m glad he’s been locked up for life. I want nothing to do with him ever again.
“I’ve disowned him as my dad for what he did to poor Bea. I can never forgive him. He is horrible, he is wicked.
“He should tell us where he’s hidden her but I don’t think he’ll every say. He’ll go to his grave hiding that secret.
“He’s got too much pride and it means he can control the situation.”
Anthony said his younger sister "deserves the dignity” of being laid to rest, saying: “We want to bury her, tell her we love her and say goodbye to her but I fear we’ll never get the chance.”
Officials have begged Walker, 51, to say where he has hidden the body.
Nicola Rice, senior prosecutor from CPS East of England, said: "Despite a police investigation and search, Bea’s body has never been recovered.
"We all hope that one day Scott and Sarah Walker will do the right thing and say where she is in the hope that dignity can be returned to her”.
Sentencing Walker, Mrs Justice McGowan said his refusal to tell police where Bernadette's body is "means she can't be shown the respect she deserves".
She said: "Cruellest of all, it's likely to mean some members of her family and friends will go on hoping she might be alive and might some day come back into their lives."
Former betting shop worker Anthony, told how he had to leave the family home in Peterborough, Cambs, when the house was returned to the council after his parents’ arrests.
He is now living with his maternal gran Pat Dickinson in Gorleston-on-Sea, Norfolk.
Anthony said his mum had expected a harsher sentence was was “relieved she didn’t get longer.”
I’ve disowned him as my dad for what he did to poor Bea. I can never forgive him. He is horrible, he is wicked.
He has “no idea” if his mum knows where his sister’s body is, telling The Sun Online: “I’m shocked by her involvement. I think she was forced into it. I have no idea if she knows where Bea is.
“I hope that is if she did she would say. How can she leave her own daughter out there?
“I haven't decided if I’m going to speak to her again but I definitely will never see or speak to him again. They both deserve what they got.
“At first I wanted to believe they were innocent because without a body there was a chance police could have got it wrong but it wasn't to be."
When his sister first went missing Anthony started an online campaign, calling his Facebook page “Help Me Find My Sister."
He posted: "We miss you so much and just want you home. It’s heartbreaking.”
Bernadette was last seen alive on July 18 last year when Walker – who she called “Dad” despite not being her biological father – picked her up from her grandparents' home.
He formed an "unholy alliance" with her mum to make it look like she was still alive and had run away.
The couple sent messages from her phone and social media accounts after reporting her missing to "lay a false trail".
Walker cooked up the "devious, wicked" plot after Bernadette told her mum he had been sexually abusing her "over a number of years" in a murderous bid to silencer her.
The court heard he had also spied on her undressing using cameras hidden in the bathroom and touched her inappropriately in a games room.
'ROT IN HELL'
Police today urged the monster to reveal where her body is after he was caged for life with a minimum of 32 years for murder and perverting the course of justice.
The judge said she was "sure Sarah Walker was the guiding mind behind the detail of plan to cover up Bernadette's death".
She admitting lying to police about her disappearance but denied knowing she was dead.
It comes after a haunting video showed Bernadette smiling and laughing with her "best pal" mum before she covered up her murder.
The chilling footage shows the teen and her mum, Sarah, giggling on a roundabout at a playground just months before Sarah covered up her daughter's murder.
Bernadette’s gran – Sarah’s mum Pat Dickinson – previously said that the killer must reveal where he had hidden her body.
Speaking to The Sun Online after their convictions in July Pat said: "He is horrible and deserves to rot in hell. I can’t believe he killed my beautiful granddaughter but he’s been found guilty.
"Now he must tell us where he has hidden her body so we can give her a decent burial. We need to have closure and Bernadette must rest in peace.”
Pat, 61, added: “I feel like I’ve been in a coma for a year and just woken up to this dreadful news.
“I feel like I have two angels on each shoulder, one saying Bernadette’s out there waiting to be found and the other saying she’s not.
“But she‘s not the type of girl to run away. Deep down we know she’s not alive ut we just want to know where she is to bring her home. She was a lovely girl and didn’t deserve this. She and her mum were best pals.
“He is the only person who knows where she is.”
Pat told how she is “sticking by” her daughter despite her crime.
She told her Walker’s real mum Rosina Walker “can’t believe her son has murdered his daughter", saying: “I spoke to her after the verdict and she can’t stop crying.”
