When Hart was released from prison he needed money, he shot Angela Wooliscroft during a bank raid in Richmond, Surrey. She was shot in the left carotid artery from a sawn-off shotgun.
The shot that Angela had been killed with proved a confusing area in the investigation, as it was a different type to the one found in the possession of Michael Hart when he was arrested. However, it was discovered that Hart's shot was actually from a batch that had been mislabelled in the factory.
Hart was sentenced to life imprisonment, with a recommendation that serve a minimum of 25 years.
