Sentence - Murder - Custodial sentence - Judge not identifying element of intention in setting minimum term - Whether custodial sentence manifestly excessive.
Sentence Murder. The defendant's appeal against his minimum term 13 years and 338 days for murder was dismissed on the basis that on a proper analysis of the circumstances of the offence revealed that an intention to cause really serious harm rather than to kill did not truly mitigate the circumstances in which the horrifying violence had been meted out.
