The court rejected his plea of manslaughter because of diminished responsibility due to heavy consumption of drugs, alcohol, and juvenile trauma, while the judge said he presented an “immense danger” to the public if allowed free beyond prison walls.

His legal team has been allowed to appeal for his sentence to be served in Britain.
