Jail term plea over sadistic killers Anthony Graham and Deborah Clark
A COUPLE who tortured and killed a man in his own home could have their sentences increased.
Anthony Graham and Deborah Clark subjected Mikhail Eno, 57, to a three-hour attack after he discovered they had been stealing from him.
The killers, who beat former BAE Systems worker Mr Eno – also known as Michael Oliver – with a hammer and shovel, were convicted last month by a jury at Hull Crown Court.
They were ordered to spend at least 20 years behind bars before they could be considered for parole.

However, the Attorney General has ordered a review after receiving a letter of complaint from a Hull resident who thought the sentences were too lenient.
The man, who did not wish to be named, told the Mail: "It was such a sadistic, horrific, premeditated attack that I felt 20 years was too lenient for them.
"I felt they should have got at least 30 years, so I wrote to the Attorney General and asked for the sentence to be reviewed.
"I sat through the trial and after listening to what they had done, it just felt wrong that the sentence was only 20 years for what they had done to that poor man."
The Attorney General agreed with the man and is now appealing the sentence at the Court of Appeal next month.
Clark is also appealing her sentence in a bid to get her sentence reduced.
Graham, 41, and Clark, 33, were convicted after a four-week trial.
The jury heard how they had moved into Mr Eno's Hessle flat three months before his murder and began stealing some of his treasured possessions.
When he discovered what they had been doing, Graham and Clark attacked him.
Mr Eno suffered 227 injuries during the assault on November 8, 2010.
Sentencing, Judge Jeremy Richardson QC told Graham and Clark: "The violence you visited upon Mr Eno was ferocious, remorseless and plentiful. You showed him no mercy whatsoever.
"You are both vicious and remorseless individuals. You jointly perpetrated a truly shocking murder on a defenceless man in a drug-fuelled orgy of violence."
