Sentence - Mandatory life sentence - Murder - Minimum term - Reference by Secretary of State to set minimum term - , Sch 22, para 6.
In the circumstances, the starting point for the offence of murder committed by the offender would have been 12 years' imprisonment. However, taking into account the mitigating factors, namely the plea of guilty, lack of intent to kill and obvious remorse, the appropriate minimum term would be nine years from which would be deducted the period spent on remand, namely 4 months and 14 days.
