Georgia Williams Murderer To Appeal Whole Life Sentence

A man who murdered a 17-year-old Georgia Williams in Shropshire is at the court of appeal in London late to ask for his whole life sentence to be overturned.

23-year-old Jamie Reynolds is going to the Court of Appeal in London later to argue he shouldn't spend the rest of his life behind bars.

He killed 17-year-old Georgia in a sexually motivated attack and at his sentencing the judge said had the potential to become a serial killer.

Stafford Crown Court was told by prosecutor David Crigman QC that Reynolds had carried out a ''scripted, sadistic and sexually-motivated murder'' and planned the killing meticulously.

He described Reynolds as a manipulative individual and ''a sexual deviant'' who had had ''a morbid fascination in pornography depicting violence towards young women in a sexual context since at least 2008''.

Sentencing Reynolds, Mr Justice Wilkie said he agreed with a psychiatric report that he ''had the potential to progressing to become a serial killer''.

He duped Miss Williams, 17, into going to his home for a photo-shoot, but he killed her - a post-mortem showed she died of asphyxia as a result of pressure to the neck, probably caused by a ligature.

Her body was eventually found in a stream in remote woodland near Wrexham.
