Court refuses bid to jail "rough sex defence" killer for longer

Judges at the Court of Appeal refused a bit by the Attorney General, Suella Braverman QC, to review the sentence handed to Sam Pybus.

He was jailed for four years and eight months after he admitted the manslaughter of Sophie Moss, who he choked to death during sex. His claim that she consented has been dubbed the “rough sex defence”.

But Lady Justice Macur, sitting with Lady Justice Carr and Mr Justice Murray at the Royal Courts of Justice in central London, said the jail term Pybus received was not “unduly lenient”.
