Peter Sutcliffe to challenge high court ruling over sentence – The Guardian

“Peter Sutcliffe, the Yorkshire Ripper, will tomorrow (30 November) challenge a high court ruling that he must spend the rest of his life in jail. His case will be heard at the court of appeal by the lord chief justice, Lord Judge, Mr Justice Calvert-Smith and Mr Justice Griffith Williams. In a decision in July, Mr Justice Mitting said the serial killer must serve a ‘whole life’ tariff. The former lorry driver, from Bradford, West Yorkshire, was convicted at the Old Bailey in 1981. Sutcliffe, 64, received 20 life sentences in 1981 after being convicted of murdering 13 women and attempting to murder another seven.”
