The Herald reports:
A double-killer who savagely raped and murdered a young Christchurch woman 24 years after he first killed an ex-girlfriend in a chillingly similar case has today been sentenced to life imprisonment with a minimum non-parole period of 28 years.
Paul Pounamu Tainui, aka Paul Russell Wilson, 55, will be at least 83-years-old before he can even be considered for a release from jail.
A pity the court turned down the prosecution request for LWOP. The families of the two victims will still be alive in 28 years and they shouldn’t have to go through the trauma of submitting to the Parole Board to keep him in jail.
Someone who has murdered twice, should never be given a third chance.
