British businessman Ian Griffin sentenced to 20 years in prison
Ian Griffin, 45, who had been called a 'lying British gigolo' in court, was last night sentenced to 20 years in prison for the murder of Kinga Legg, 36, (right) at the five-star Bristol Hotel in Paris, in May 2009.
The couple had been on a glamorous trip to the south of France to get married in Monaco, but Griffin (pictured outside court yesterday) was seeing another girlfriend, 34-year-old Tracy Baker, at the same time. Prosecutor Philippe Courroye said that the case was a classic one of 'violence against women'.
