A Romford woman who was jailed for her part in the murder of a teenage housemate has had her sentence increased from 15 to 17 years.

Emma Hall had her minimum jail term reviewed at the Court of Appeal in London today after the country’s senior law office, Attorney General Dominic Grieve said it was “unduly lenient”.

Emma Hall, 21 of Crow Lane, was one of a gang of three who were given life sentences following a trial at the Old Bailey in April for the murder of 18-year-old Luke Harwood.

Hall was jailed alongside housemates, James Danby and Tony O’Toole of murdering Luke.

Danby and O’Toole, did not see their sentences altered.

Billy Duggan, 21, was convicted of perverting the course of justice and conspiracy to pervert the course of justice. His sentence was challenged by the Attorney General alongside Hall’s, but was not changed.
