Erm, a link to the story? 

 

What's the problem with sentencing taking that long if he's hasn't been released on bail anyway?

Judge might need to time gather various reports on the killer before making his decision on the sentence.  or they might just be busy.

 

Since they'll be locked up anyway, it's not like there's any real rush.

Ryan Giggs had to have a re-trial - he was cleared - but he had to wait nearly a year with it hanging over his head,  I can't see if that's reasonable,  I hope he was compensated,  not sure about Benjamin Mendy who was also cleared,  both trials took months.

Not sure why he should be compensated. The fact that that the first jury couldn’t reach a verdict proves the CPS were correct in charging him.
Like most public services, the justice system is starved of cash and compensating everybody who has a long wait would only make things worse.

Sounds like he must have changed his plea.

Was due to sentenced on Wednesday 8th November, Mr wheelers wife is in pure torment. No trail as he's pleaded guilty to manslaughter. First she couldn't bury her husband,now she has to wait even longer for sentencing

Well he's hardly getting out. They clearly need to do pre sentence reports, it's all part of the legal system. If they don't do it properly then it leaves it open for an appeal on the sentence length.  Pretty sure she won't want that either.
