[2007] EWCA Crim 1692

Where a 67-year-old man and his partner had been robbed in their own home, threatened with weapons and punched, a five-year sentence of imprisonment was appropriate, taking into account an early guilty plea and double jeopardy; and, where one blow to the head resulted in the death eight days later of the 67-year-old man, a concurrent sentence of five years' detention was appropriate for manslaughter, taking into account the guilty plea, the offender's age of 20 years and double jeopardy.
