Sarah Everard murder: Wayne Couzens given whole-life sentence
Sentencing Wayne Couzens to a whole-life term, the judge said he had eroded confidence in the police.
A Met Police officer who murdered Sarah Everard after kidnapping her under the guise of an arrest has been sentenced to a whole-life prison term.
Wayne Couzens abducted the 33-year-old as she walked home from a friend's house in south London on 3 March.
During the sentencing of Couzens, the judge said the case was "devastating, tragic and wholly brutal".
Ms Everard's family said they were relieved by the fact that Couzens would die in jail.
This story was, and still is, huge news here in the UK. There’s an investigation still ongoing into vetting new recruits. Just goes to prove that even here, those sworn to uphold the law think they’re above it - but they ain’t. Glad that he’ll die inside.
