Sentencing at the Old Bailey

Former British police officer, Wayne Couzens, has been sentenced to a whole life order for the kidnap, rape and murder of Sarah Everard.

The father-of-two was told he will never be released from prison, for the murder of the marketing executive.

On 3rd March, Ms. Everard was walking home from a friend's home, in Clapham, London, when 48 year-old Couzens made a fake arrest.

He handcuffed the 33-year-old & drove her to Kent, where he raped, strangled & then burned her body.

A post-mortem examination revealed Ms. Everard died of compression to the neck.

Sky's crime correspondent Martin Brunt says the judge decided he deserved the toughest sentence available:

Ms. Everard's mother, Susan, said she is haunted by her daughter's kidnap.

Sky's crime correspondent Martin Brunt heard the impact statement:

The family of the 33 year-old say they're "pleased" her killer will spend the rest of his life in jail - and it "brings some relief".

These people in south London, near where she was abducted, says the sentence is appropriate:
