Grieving mum's call for law change

A Flintshire mum who's son died after being punched is campaigning for manslaughter sentences to be longer saying the 40 months her son's killer got is "ridiculous".

Peter Jones died after being punched by Gafyn Denman in Buckley last May.

Denman, 22, of Woodlands Close in Mold admitted manslaughter and was jailed for 3 years and 4 months at Caernarfon Crown Court.

Peter's mum Christine has now written to the Prime Minister asking for a change in the law as she doesn't think the sentence is severe enough.

She said:

"They need to change the law to give a higher sentence - five or six years, not three.

"It's ridiculous, it should be a life for a life.

"It's going to be too late for my son's case but let's change the law for other people's cases.

"People go out robbing houses and get longer, but someone can kill someone and get three years - it's ridiculous."
