Triple murderer Carl Mills could spend the rest of his life behind bars

A MAN who torched his teenage girlfriend's home - killing three generations of one family - could have his sentence extended today.
Judges are reviewing Carl Mills' jail sentence to see if it is "unduly lenient".
Jealous alcoholic Carl Mills, aged 28, from Bolton, was jailed for life in July and ordered to serve a 30-year minimum term behind bars before he can apply for parole.
Kim Buckley, aged 46, her daughter Kayleigh, aged 17, and granddaughter Kimberley, aged six months, died in the fire in Cwmbran, south Wales, in September last year.
Thick smoke and flames quickly spread from the main porch to the stairs, cutting off all escape routes.
Mills had bombarded his partner with threatening texts and warned: "I will burn your house down."
Kimberley, born 13 weeks premature, was at home in the property for the first time after being discharged from hospital that day.
Homeless Mills, the baby's father, was living in a tent in the front garden but had been banned from seeing the child unsupervised.
The length of the minimum term imposed at Newport Crown Court after Mills was found guilty of the murders will be scrutinised by the Lord Chief Justice, Lord Thomas, sitting with two other judges at the Court of Appeal in London.
