Murderer Francesco John Prevete will have to serve at least 23 years for the killing of North Wales amateur boxer Craig Maddocks, who died a horrific death after being stabbed 52 times in pub toilets at Wrexham.

The judge today  told Prevete, 46, at Mold Crown Court that he would receive a life sentence and that the minimum term he should serve before he could apply for parole would be 23 years.

The judge described it as a brutal and ferocious attack.

    Shame that the death penalty is not around - when murder it is proven without doubt, that person should be executed - same as those murderers of the soldier in London - why should the taxpayer get stung for £Millions to keep these low life in prison and in some cases better off than the poor in the UK ?
