Manslaughter wasnt it brendan.  Tbf though he is an @rsehole and thick as mince, i dont think he intended to kill them.  Dnt know if they can lock up for life meaning life for manslaughter.  I mean huntley is eligible for parole but unlikely to get it... But he was done for murder.  He shouldnt be released ever imo.

I recall one of my parents' neighbours bumped his wife off and fed her to the chickens and pigs.  Drove her car to the station and made out she had left him.  A long time later he was found guilty of her manslaughter, there was no body since he'd fed her to the chickens so they had to take his word for it that it wasn't premeditated and they'd simply had a fight and she'd suffered fatal injuries in a fall.  He got someat like 3-5 years and was out in no time.

Report FlowerMyth April 4, 2013 6:44 PM BST
I don't think so jed, if you read the judge's summing up in full she said that the wife portrayed herself as totally in this man's grasp, was completely besotted and did whatever he wanted, but that it came out that when he wanted to divorce her she refused to budge. She said this showed that she had the strength to refuse him when she wanted to, when it was something she didn't agree with. Refusing to endanger the lives of her kids wasn't something she felt sufficiently concerned about to stand up to him.

Karaoke, threesome in the hotel,planning to rape each other over the graves of the kids does sound like he didnt care much about his kids death much at all.
