WAVERLEY man Michael Vernon Lowe will spend at least 12 years behind bars for murder.
A Launceston Supreme Court jury last week found Lowe guilty of the murder of Darren Booth, 37, at Kings Meadows in May 2012.
Lowe had tried to argue self-defence to explain his actions.
This morning Justice Robert Pearce sentenced Lowe to 20 years' jail, with a non-parole period of 12 years.
Justice Pearce said Lowe, 52, had shown no remorse.
"Mr Booth had done nothing wrong,'' he told the court.
''He was entitled to be where he was and his presence provided no justification for Mr Lowe's violent criminal conduct.
"Mr Lowe's violence continued in the face of Mr Booth's defence of himself.
"He is not entitled to the mitigation that admissions and a plea of guilty would have attracted."
Justice Pearce today also discharged the non-publication order which had previously prohibited the media from reporting on Lowe's association with an outlaw motorcycle gang.
