Victoria's top prosecutor has lodged an appeal over the length of the 36-year jail term imposed on Codey Herrmann for the rape and murder of Aiia Maasarwe, on the grounds the sentence is inadequate.
Herrmann, 20, was last month ordered to serve 30 years in prison before he is eligible for parole for attacking and killing Ms Maasarwe, 21, in Bundoora in the early hours of January 16.
He struck the international student from Israel with a metal pipe in the minutes after she got off a tram from a night out in central Melbourne, then repeatedly bashed her, raped her and set her body alight.

Supreme Court Justice Elizabeth Hollingworth ordered Herrmann serve at least three decades in prison but found his personality disorder, which stemmed from a childhood of disadvantage and neglect, reduced his moral culpability.
Director of Public Prosecutions Kerri Judd, QC, said on Tuesday her office had lodged an appeal against the length of the sentence with Victoria's Court of Appeal.
After the initial attack, Herrmann dragged Ms Maasarwe onto a small patch of grass near the Polaris Shopping Centre.
There he raped her and struck her another nine times to the head with the pipe, before spraying cleaning agent WD-40 over her body and setting it alight with a barbecue lighter, most likely when she was dead.
"Treating her body like this showed utter contempt of her dignity," Justice Hollingworth said.
Justice Hollingworth said there were similarities in the cases of Herrmann and Jaymes Todd, who raped and murdered aspiring comedian Eurydice Dixon as she walked home through Princes Park in 2018.
Both killers had no prior criminal history.
Todd was jailed for life, to serve at least 35 years, after Justice Stephen Kaye was told the killer's sexual sadism disorder could not be treated, which limited his chances for reform. Todd is appealing his sentence.
