Ian Bailey, a 62-year-old former freelance journalist, has always denied killing Sophie Toscan du Plantier, the wife of a prominent French film producer, at her holiday home in County Cork in southwest Ireland. But on Friday in Paris Bailey is sentenced ‘in absentia’ to 25 years in prison and has a warrant issued for his arrest. Toscan du Plantier’s son Pierre-Louis Baudey-Vignaud, after hearing the verdict, says: “Ian Bailey is a murderer.” SOUNDBITE
