The murderer of British backpacker Peter Falconio will spend at least 28 years in jail.

Bradley John Murdoch, 47, was yesterday found guilty of killing Peter Falconio and assaulting Joanne Lees on the side of a Territory highway in July 2001.

In court today, the Crown prosecutor described the offences as cold-blooded and pre-meditated.

Murdoch's defence lawyer said his client should have the opportunity to spend his twilight years out of jail.

But the judge sentenced Murdoch to a mandatory life term in prison with a non-parole period of 28 years.

SHUDDER!

That sends shiver down my spine - reminds me of doing Jury Service in the UK and being nominated as spokes person since I was the only one wearing a tie. 2 out of the 14 jurors were illiterate!

I didn't disappoint, managed to get the verdict wrong and announced the guy guilty to a count from which had been acquitted the day before!!!! :eek: :eek: :eek:

His young daughter was a little emotional..

Anyway, this is one to tell over some beers.

6 years ago and it still gives me a cold sweat
:rolleyes:
