Today's "Released Under Supervision" Murderer

Shaun Clarke.

Staffordshire Probation Service has also launched an inquiry as Clarke was under its supervision since being released from Sudbury Open prison, Derbyshire, in 2003 - 16 years into a life sentence for a murder.

Chief probation officer Rob Mandley said: "I can confirm that Mr Clarke was sentenced for murder in 1987 - life imprisonment. He was released from prison in May 2003."

Wow. The original murder must have been pretty bad, for him to have been kept locked up for all of 16 years.

Surely ten years is the usual meaning of "life imprisonment".

What, precisely, "is supervision"?
