Milton and another v R

Criminal law – Murder. The first appellant appealed against his conviction for murder and conspiracy to murder, and both appellants appealed against their sentences for life imprisonment, with eligibility for parole after 35 years. The Privy Council, in dismissing the appeals, held that there was no doubt that the first appellant's conviction had been the only proper verdict. Further, the sentence had been carefully reviewed by the Court of Appeal and it would not be right to interfere with its judgment.
