Wayne Couzens among five murderers set to have their prison sentence reviewed by senior judges
Sky News says former Metropolitan Police officer Wayne Couzens is one of five murderers set to have their prison sentence reviewed by senior judges in the Royal Courts of Justice on Wednesday.
Couzens, who murdered Sarah Everard in March 2021, and Ian Stewart, who murdered his wife in 2010 and fiancee in 2016, will have their whole life terms reviewed after they appealed their sentences.
A whole life term is handed down in the most serious cases when a judge believes a person should never be considered for release.
Emma Tustin and Thomas Hughes, who were jailed for 29 and 21 years respectively in December 2021 for the murder of six-year-old Arthur Labinjo-Hughes, will also have their sentences reviewed after they appealed their jail terms.
