Baden-Clay to appeal conviction for murdering wife

Gerard Baden-Clay is set to appeal his conviction for murdering his wife Allison in 2012.

Lawyers for the former real estate agent are due to take his case to Queensland’s Court of Appeal on Friday arguing four grounds for appeal, including a miscarriage of justice.

The 44-year-old was found guilty by a jury of killing his wife Allison at their family home before dumping her body under a bridge.

He was given a life sentence with no parole for at least 15 years for the brutal crime.

Lawyers for Baden Clay will argue today that the judge’s instructions to the jury about evidence, including a scratch on his face, contained errors.
