R v Whittle

Sentence – Murder. The sentence of imprisonment for life, with a minimum term of 20 years, less days spent on remand, imposed on the defendant for murder had been severe, but not manifestly excessive. The Court of Appeal, Criminal Division, in dismissing the defendant's appeal, held that account was taken of the mitigating features, but they had been limited and wholly insufficient to outweigh the gravity of the aggravating features.
