A Telford murderer hasn't had whole life jail term for killing 17 year old Georgia Williams overturned.

Jamie Reynolds - who's 23 - lured her from her home in Wellington last May - and dumped her body near Wrexham.

Stafford Crown Court was told by prosecutor David Crigman QC that Reynolds 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 ''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 examination 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.

His appeal centred on the amount of credit to be given in relation to his age and guilty plea.

The appeal was contested by the prosecution.
