The Canberra Times is reporting that Scott Alexander McDougall has been given two life sentences for the murders of Struan Bolas and Julie Tattersall (aka Julie Franco).
Apparently there’s no parole but he will be able to apply to the Attorney-General for a “licence for release” after 10 years.

In handing down his sentence, Justice Gray told the packed courtroom he considered the murders to be in the most serious category, describing them as ferocious and callous.
He said McDougall had “given into a frenzied blood lust and killed his friends in the most brutal way.”
Justice Gray handed down two life sentences for both counts of murder and five years jail for arson.
