Regina v Bonellie Regina v Hughes and Regina v Miller
Court of Appeal
“For a murder to involve sadistic conduct, so as to merit a 30-year starting point in determining the minimum term of the mandatory life sentence, the conduct had to involve a significant degree of awareness of pleasure in the infliction of pain, suffering or humiliation.”
