‘Horror’ rapist has life sentence reduced

Updated Fri Dec 21, 2012 9:29pm AEDT

A Queensland man convicted of inflicting “unimaginable horrors” on a 13-year-old girl has had his life sentence reduced on appeal.

Andrew Scott Shenfield, 41, and Rebecca Louise Mahony, 33, were jailed for life by a Supreme Court judge in Brisbane last year for 30 offences including 13 counts of rape and torture.

Their crimes against their 13-year-old victim were described as perverted degradation, that was not a nightmare for the victim but a living hell that left her with mental scarring she will carry for the rest of her life.

Both appealed against their sentences.

Mahony’s appeal was dismissed after the Court of Appeal considered evidence she intended to kill her victim.

Shenfield’s life sentence, however, was reduced to 18 years because he had prevented Mahony from doing so.
