David Minto is appealing against his 35 year sentence for the murder of teenager Sasha Marsden at a hotel in Blackpool.

Minto lured the student to the scene on the pretence of giving her a job as a cleaner at the hotel in January 2013, but when she rejected his advances he stabbed her dozens of times and then set her on fire in an alleyway.
