FACTFILE

 

1989, Jackson strangled Stephen Raven, then dumped his body. Mr Ravens' clothing had been interfered with; although he was wearing clothes, they had clearly been taken off prior to his killing because his underpants had been put on inside out and back to front
Jackson served 16 years of his life sentence

2006, Jackson released from prison on life licence.

3rd October 2008, Jackson strangled convicted sex offender Gordon Boon and dumped his body in a lane at Great Witchingham, Norfolk, only two years after being released from prison for the first murder.
The pair had met in a bail hostel, the motive is not known, but Mr Boons' clothes had been opened, similar to the 1989 killing of Mr Raven.

Tuesday 23rd March 2010, Mr Justice Underhill said: "This was a shocking murder. You are evidently a very dangerous man.
"I am obliged to pass a sentence of life imprisonment on you and you will spend the rest of your life in jail.
"The early release system will not apply in your case."

Jackson received a 'Whole Life tariff' and goes on a Home Office list of those who should never be released. See list here >>
