Killer sentence now 18 years
A MAN who brutally killed an elderly woman in her bed then raped her body has had his sentence increased by five years. Maurizio Perini, 38, is now due to serve 18 years behind bars for the horrific attack on Carmel Wuth at her Southport unit in early 2008. He was sentenced to 13 years in August last year. Justice Margaret White said the ‘‘ cruelty and ferocity of of the attack’’ on Ms Wuth could have called for a life sentence, even though Perini was suffering diminished responsibility due to an abnormality of mind.
