Sentence - Murder - Mandatory life sentence - Minimum term - Setting - Appropriate minimum term - , Sch 22, para 6.
A minimum term of 16 years was set in respect of an offender who had murdered his wife by half strangling and then drowning her. That took into account the fact that he had admitted the offence following a failed appeal yet having regard to the possibility that his later account could have been fashioned to fit the evidence being the action of a very intelligent man seeking to minimise his role and achieve as great a reduction of his minimum term as possible.
