Life for murder
Life for murder

A 30-year-old man has been jailed for life with a minimum of 17 years for murdering Damian Andrew Noakes in a frenzied attack.

Supreme Court Justice Stephen Hall yesterday sentenced Phillip John Smith over the murder of Mr Noakes at a Mosman Park unit in June 2012.

Smith later covered Mr Noakes' body with a blanket, drank more alcohol, listened to music and fell asleep before setting the unit on fire.
