Sughra Rani's body was found by police

A man who was jailed for life after admitting murdering his wife at their Oxfordshire home is to have his sentence reconsidered by a judge.

Sughra Rani, 30, was found stabbed to death at their house in Mold Crescent, Banbury, in September last year.

Mohammed Rashid, 35, was told he would spend a minimum of 13 years and 10 months in jail before being eligible for parole.

However, police said new information could affect the sentence.

The case will be heard at Oxford Crown Court later this month.
