Murderer Christopher Taylor

Christopher Taylor, then aged 25, and his 19-year-old girlfriend Kayley Boleyn were jailed for life in July 2010 after murdering little Ryan Lovell-Hancox.

They were given minimum terms of 15 years and 13 years respectively after the court was told the youngster had more than 70 separate injuries on his body when he died.

Taylor applied for parole before Christmas which was provisionally turned down, subject to appeal. He took up the appeal and also applied to be transferred to an open prison.
