[2004] EWCA Crim 1952

A sentence of six years following a plea of guilty to manslaughter was unduly lenient given that the defendant disputed the manner of death and had committed a serious sexual assault on the victim. A longer than commensurate sentence of nine years would be passed to protect the public as the defendant had numerous previous convictions for violent offences.
