The boys – two aged 16 and one 17 – were given the life sentences at Leamington Crown Court today.
They must serve a minimum of 16 years before they can be considered for release.
An application was made to the trial judge to lift restrictions preventing juvenile defendants from being named, arguing it was in the public interest for people to know their identities.
However, the application was turned down and we are unable to legally name them.
