The Champagne Killer jailed for 32 years

Smiling happily for the camera with a pretty girl he had just met on the Internet, Arben Lleshi was enjoying the high life without a shadow of concern on his face about what he had just done.

Today the 27-year-old is starting a life sentence and will spend at least 32 years behind bars after being found guilty of killing Agim Hoxha, a well-off drug dealer who supplied cocaine to the white collar workers of Hampshire.
