The man who raped and murdered Melbourne woman Jill Meagher has had his prison sentence reduced by three years.
Adrian Bayley’s non-parole period was cut this morning by Victoria’s Court of Appeal, meaning he will now be eligible for release in 2055 when he is 83 years old.
Last year, Bayley was convicted of raping three other women, increasing his non-parole period to 43 years.
He appealed against two of the three convictions and today, part of his appeal was upheld, with the court quashing one of the rape convictions.
The three other women were attacked in 2000 and early 2012, before Bayley raped and murdered Meagher in September 2012.
