Lewis was 21 years old, in a loving relationship with his partner Olivia and they were parents to their son, Carter, who was just one at the time of the murder.

Olivia has previously said that she will fight for Wiley to die behind bars “an old man”.

“How can it be fair that when he is in his 30s he gets his freedom back and is able to carry on as though this never happened? It is wrong,” Olivia said.

“He killed somebody in the prime of their life with the world at his feet.”
