- Jordan Cunliffe, 28, expected to be released from prison this year
- He was 16 when he killed the father of three Garry Newlove, 47, in 2007
- Cunliffe, along with two other young people, was sentenced to 12 years in prison
- He even organized a prison party in his cell to celebrate his impending release

One of Garry Newlove’s murderers was able to spend a longer time in prison after his upcoming release from a closed prison was blocked.
Jordan Cunliffe, 28, was sentenced to 12 years in prison in January 2008 after attacking father of three, Mr Newlove, 47, with two other boys outside the father of the Three’s house in Warrington.
On the advice of a Parole Board, Cunliffe expected to move to an open prison soon and even organized a drunken party in his cell to celebrate his impending freedom.

Cunliffe was 16 years old when he killed the father of three Garry Newlove, 47, in 2007, along with two other teenagers.
But Justice Secretary Robert Buckland stated that there was no “fully acceptable reason” for this move and that Cunliffe will remain in a “closed” prison until his next parole.
A source said The sun: “He’s being gutted. The path to get out looked like.
“But many will feel that it is nothing less than he deserves.”
Cunliffe was 16 when he fatally assaulted Mr. Newlove in 2007 with the help of Adam Swellings and Stephen Sorton, both 19, after the Warrington resident reprimanded the three teenagers, who had been reprimanded under the influence of alcohol, for vandalizing cars in his street.
Mr. Newlove died three days after the incident, leaving his wife, Baroness Helen Newlove, with his three children.

Cunliffe held a drunken party in his prison cell earlier this year to celebrate what he believed was his imminent release, which angered Baroness Helen Newlove (pictured), Garry’s wife.
The tragic death of the 47-year-old stunned the nation and became a symbol for ‘Broken Britain’.
When Baroness Newlove heard about Cunliffe’s drunken parties pending what he thought would be his imminent release, he said, “It is absolutely disgusting.
“How can he have a party in prison with alcohol? It makes you think.
Cunliffe was a huge instigator of Garry’s death. It feels like he’s laughing at Garry’s body again. ‘
