A 19-year-old man who posted a Facebook message claiming a B&Q worker in the Isle of Man was one of James Bulger's killers has had his sentencing adjourned for reports.
Wayne Vincent Dale, of Ballacannell Estate in Lonan, admitted using provoking behaviour, and another charge of theft.
The prosecution said that while he was on bail on the provoking behaviour charge he stole $1,100 US from the house where his girlfriend lived.
He will appear in court again on April 23.
James Bulger was a two-year-old child from Kirby on Merseyside, who was abducted and murdered by two ten-year-old boys in February 1993.
His killers, Robert Thompson and Jon Venables, were given new identities when they were released from custody in 2001.
Strict rules laid down by the courts in the United Kingdom protect Thompson and Venables from being identified.
