Kenneth Noye release from jail could be approved this week

Road-rage killer Kenneth Noye will learn this week if he can be released from jail.

Kenneth Noye

The 71-year-old, who is currently in Standford Hill open prison in Kent, was jailed for life with a minimum term of 16 years in 2000.

He stabbed 21-year-old Stephen Cameron to death on a slip road to the M25 in Swanley, Kent, in 1996, in front of Mr Cameron's 17-year-old fiancee.

Noye then went on the run to Spain, claiming he could not get a fair trial in the UK, before he was extradited back to Britain and convicted.

If the Parole Board decides that Noye is suitable for release after a hearing on Wednesday, he will be released within around three months, the Sun reported.

Mr Cameron's father, Ken, told the newspaper:

All we ever wanted was justice. Life should mean life for him. The only way Noye should be allowed out is in a wooden box.

An oral hearing has been listed for the parole review of Kenneth Noye and is scheduled to take place this month. A panel of the Parole Board will consider a range of evidence before making its decision. This will be done with great care and with public safety the number one priority.
