Sentencing of Clive Sharp, who has admitted murdering Flintshire vet Catherine Gowing, has been adjourned until next month. He has been remanded in custody until then.
The judge, Mr Justice Griffith-Williams, said: 'There is only one sentence I can pass on you for this offence, as you will know."I have to work out what the minimum term you will serve is before the Parole Board consider you for release - if you are ever to be released.'
