- Tom Meagher says justice system failed his murdered wife Jill and Adrian Bayley's sentence is a disgrace
The husband of murdered ABC staffer Jill Meagher has hit out at the sentence handed to her killer Adrian Bayley.
Bayley, who has a long history of violent attacks on women, was jailed for at least 35 years for raping and killing the 29-year-old in September last year.
In an exclusive interview with the ABC's 7.30, Ms Meagher's husband Tom describes Bayley as "unrepentantly evil" and says the sentence is a "disgrace".
He says Bayley's criminal past makes his "blood boil", and that his wife would still be alive if the justice system had not failed her.
