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.
Police in Blackpool have charged a man with murdering a 16-year-old girl in the town.
Sasha Marsden's body was found in a back alley in South Shore on Thursday.
David Minto, 22, was charged with her murder on Sunday evening and is due to appear at Blackpool Magistrates' Court this morning.
