Sentence - Mandatory life sentence - Murder - Minimum term - Reference to High Court for it to set minimum term - , Sch 22, para 6.
The setting of a tariff under para6 of Sch22 to the was not an appeal from the judge's recommendations, but one of setting a minimum term. Accordingly, the fact that the trial judge had not been aware that the deceased had a history of being violent when drunk did not affect the fact that the aggravating features of the offence, which included hitting the deceased's head with a monkey wrench three times and then dumping the body and fleeing to Thailand, resulted in the appropriate tariff being set at 12 years.
