[2004] EWCA Crim 2361

Despite the mitigating circumstances it had to be recognised that a jury had found the defendant guilty of manslaughter by arson being reckless to life, in those circumstances there would be a one-year reduction in a four-year custodial sentence in a young offender's institution.
