One of two British brothers convicted for the killing of a 10-year old schoolboy was Sunday returned to jail after breaching his licence conditions, the BBC reported.

Ricky and Danny Preddie were jailed for eight years in 2006 for the manslaughter of Damilola Taylor, who had moved to London from the Nigerian city of Lagos.

Ricky Preddie, who was aged 13 at the time of the incident, which shocked the country, was freed in September after serving two thirds of his sentence.

Taylor died in London in 2000 after being stabbed with a broken bottle on his way home from school.
