[2007] EWCA Crim 965

A minimum term of 16-and-a-half years for a mandatory sentence of life imprisonment had been unduly lenient since the judge had erred in adopting a starting point of 15 years for a murder involving sexual activity that fell within the terms of the Criminal Justice Act 2003 Sch.21 para.5(2)(e).
