    Graham Buck, vice-chair of Aldwyck Housing Group, was stabbed in Little Gaddesden, Hertfordshire, last July as he tried to help an elderly neighbour who was being robbed.

    Inside Housing reported that Ian John McLoughlin, 55, committed the offence on day-release from prison after 21 years in jail for another murder.

    Mr McLoughlin admitted to murdering Mr Buck and was told he must serve at least 40 years in prison.

    Justice Sweeney said this at the sentencing of Mr McLoughlin at the Old Bailey:

    ‘The offence was committed on the day of your first day-release from prison after 21 years in custody, after being in prison for a life sentence for murder in 1992 life imprisonment.'

    Mr McLoughlin also pled guilty to robbery for which he was sentenced to eight years, to run concurrently.

    Harj Singh, chief executive of Aldwyck Housing Group, in July at the time of Mr. Buck's death which served as a shock to the housing sector:

    ‘We are greatly saddened by the news of Graham's death. As a long serving member of our board he has made a huge contribution to the success of Aldwyck Housing Group. ‘Graham's knowledge, experience and commitment to the aims and values of our organisation mean that he will be missed by many.'
