Intriguing story, the trial which begins tomorrow is to show whether he intended her death or not, makes all the difference to the sentence.

The photo that I saw of him today supposedly en larmes with her family at the press conference showed him with a screwed up face grimace exactly like Mick Philpott & his wife Mayrene or whatever her name was, it was in marked contrast to her family who you could see were genuinely grief stricken.

A grim story. I'll catch up later at 20.00. Is that 25 reviewable ?

He's said he won't appeal and it was the jury of three professional magistrates and 6 citizens who decided it.

Jonathan Daval pourra entamer les premières démarches pour espérer obtenir une remise en liberté conditionnelle en 2029.
He may only serve nine years behind bars... it's no surprise he's not going to appeal.
