Review into sentence of Millom killer delayed
Last updated at 12:53, Wednesday, 25 June 2014
A JUDICIAL review into the sentence of a Millom man who axed his mother and sister has been delayed.
John Jenkin, who killed Alice McMeekin and Katie Jenkin in their Newton Street home on June 8 last year, was sentenced to life imprisonment with a minimum six year hospital order.
The Crown Prosecution Service appealed the sentence on grounds of “undue lenience”.
The review was due to take place before Lord Justice Treacy, Mr Justice Foskett and His Honour Judge Melbourne Inman QC at the Royal Courts of Justice in London this morning.
The court has reserved judgment on the application and will give its ruling at a later date.
