Man jailed for 'sadistic' murder
Otis Matthews was found guilty of murder at Liverpool Crown Court
He helped whip, burn and mutilate Brian Waters, 43, in front of the man's wife and two grown-up children at their Cheshire farm in June 2003.
The murder was called "exceptionally sadistic" by the judge, who told Matthews to serve at least 22 years.
Liverpool Crown Court heard how
In 2004 Wilson and Raven were both convicted of murder and of plotting grievous bodily harm and were jailed for life at Chester Crown Court, with a recommendation they serve at least 24 years.
During his three-hour ordeal Mr Waters was whipped, burned and attacked with a staple gun on his head.
He was then hung upside down before being beaten with an iron bar, which was also used to sexually assaulted him.
In all he sustained 123 injuries including 24 fractures to his ribs, a collapsed lung, a throat injury and burns to his back.
Sentencing Matthews, Mrs Justice Cox said it had been an "exceptionally sadistic murder committed for gain".
"Multiple injuries were inflicted over the course of death and accompanied by acts of humiliation and degradation."
She said Matthews had shown "no remorse or contrition" during the court proceedings.
During his original trial in the summer of 2004 the jury could not reach a decision and Matthews was freed.
He was retried in November 2004, convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment.
But an appeal was upheld and he faced another jury at Chester Crown Court in June 2007. Again, jurors were unable to reach a decision.
Speaking after the hearing, Det Supt Phil Jones, of Cheshire Police, said that a £30,000 reward was being offered for information leading to the conviction of anyone else involved in the attack.
One man wanted in connection with the murder is Christopher More junior, 29, who has a scar across the bridge of his nose. An international arrest warrant has been issued for him.
