Teenage pair are held after body is found.

Byline: EUAN STRETCH

A GIRL of 14 and a 16-yearold boy have been arrested on suspicion of murder after a teenager was found dead.

Jay Benton, 18, had a heart attack after suffering severe head injuries.

The two suspects were held on Wednesday after police were called to a house by paramedics. Jay was taken to hospital but pronounced dead.

Neighbours said the home in Basingstoke, Hants, was shared by a 70-year-old taxi driver, his wife and their granddaughter.

Friends of former sports science student Jay, who police have not yet formally identified, posted tributes on Facebook yesterday.

At the family's detached home in Hartley Wintney, Hants, Jay's heartbroken father Richard said that he was too upset to speak about the tragedy.
