An "internet troll" who posted obscene messages on Facebook sites set up in memory of dead people has been jailed.
Colm Coss, of Ardwick, Manchester, posted on a memorial page for Big Brother star Jade Goody and a tribute site to John Paul Massey, a Liverpool boy mauled to death by a dog.
The 36-year-old "preyed on bereaved families" for his "own pleasure", Manchester Magistrates Court heard.
He was jailed for 18 weeks for sending "malicious communications".
The posts included comments claiming he had had sex with the victims' dead bodies, the court heard.
