Gerard Baden-Clay’s bid to overturn his murder conviction for killing his wife Allison has been successful.
The Court of Appeal set aside the murder finding today, substituting it with manslaughter.
During Baden-Clay’s appeal four months ago, his lawyers argued he panicked and unintentionally killed the mother-of-three during an argument at their home in Brookfield, in Brisbane’s west.
Baden-Clay, 45, reported his wife missing in April 2012 and her body was found 10 days later beside a creek.
He was convicted of murder last year
More to Come.
