[2012] EWCA Crim 1260 [2012] EWCA Crim 1260

A minimum term of 30 years was appropriate for an offence of murder where there had been an intent to kill and a significant degree of planning and premeditation over a substantial period. The offender was entitled to a reduction in his sentence of one year for a late guilty plea and seven years for the assistance given to the Crown, and accordingly the correct minimum term was 22 years.
