Wayne Couzens 'to appeal against whole-life sentence' for Sarah Everard murder

Wayne Couzens is reportedly set to appeal against his whole-life sentence for the murder of Sarah Everard.

The 48-year-old pleaded guilty to kidnap, rape and murder and was told he would die behind bars in September.

He was given a whole-life tariff by Lord Justice Fulford after he ‘used his position as a police officer’ to abduct the 33-year-old.

If permission is granted, the case would be heard by the Court of Appeal Criminal Division.

A court official confirmed to the Daily Mirror: ‘We have been notified that an appeal has been lodged by Mr Couzens.’
