Sentence - Murder - Minimum term
Sentence Murder. For an offence of murder, the first offender's sentence of life imprisonment, with a minimum term of 16years, and the second offender's sentence of custody for life, with a minimum term of 12years, were held to have been unduly lenient under a reference by the Attorney General, pursuant to s36 of the Criminal Justice Act1988. Accordingly, the Court of Appeal, Criminal Division, quashed the minimum terms of the sentences and substituted minimum terms of 20years and 15years respectively, less time spent on remand.
