Extra jail time for attack which left a Whitemoor Prison officer with a fractured skull
A prisoner serving a life sentence for murder has had his time behind bars extended by another two years after attacking a prison officer.
Douglas Samuel was jailed in 2013 for a minimum of 20 years for murdering his partner Gaynor Bale a year previously. He killed her as part of a violent outburst at the home they shared in Homerton, London.
His sentence was reduced to 18 years by the Court of Appeal in 2014.
