Kevin Lane was the only person jailed for shooting Robert Magill
A man jailed indefinitely for the gangland murder of a Hertfordshire businessman 14 years ago will have his case reviewed by the Home Office.
Kevin Lane, of Potton, Bedfordshire, was the only person jailed for shooting Robert Magill, in Chorleywood, in 1994.
Lane claims he was the victim of a miscarriage of justice.
His lawyers argued at the High Court he was unfairly being kept as a high security category A prisoner because of his refusal to acknowledge guilt.
Speaking outside the High Court in London, Ronald Perry, a former prisoner and friend of Lane, said: "It's a classic Catch-22 situation. He can't get down-graded because he won't go on the offending courses - if he goes on the offending courses he's got to admit his guilt.
"He can't admit his guilt - why should he admit he's guilty to something he has not done?"
