PUBLISHED June 21, 2001

[2001] EWCA Crim 1631

A sentence of three and a half years' imprisonment for manslaughter where the appellant had frightened the victim, who had a heart condition, to death in an attack on his house was manifestly excessive and substituted with a term of two years and nine months.
