American rockers The Killers have dedicated a new song to a Scottish teenage murder victim.

The Law Vegas group penned WHERE IS SHE? after hearing media coverage whilst playing in Scotland of the trial of 16-year-old Luke Mitchell, who was found guilty in January 2005 of stabbing his girlfriend JODI JONES to death in June 2003.

Frontman Brandon Flowers explains, "I was watching it on the news when we were in Glasgow. It's written from the mother's perspective."

The HOT FUSS band's spokesperson adds, "It's not the band's intention to do or say anything that causes offence.

"We don't want the family to think the band are crashing in on it or commenting about what happened.

"They don't want to drag it up again and create bad memories for her family."
