Yeates family hope for Tabak's life to be 'living hell'

Joanna Yeates' family have said that they wished Vincent Tabak could have been handed a death sentence for the murder of their daughter Joanna.

In a statement read by Detective Inspector Russ Jones, the family said: "For us it is with regret that capital punishment is not an option for his sentence.

"The best we can hope for him is that he spends the rest of his life incarcerated where his life is a living hell, being the recipient of all evils, deprivations and degradations that his situation can provide."

They said they never thought they would hear the truth from Vincent Tabak, but that they needed to hear what he had to say in court.

They said that they would never get over their loss.
