Lundy gets a retrial

The Herald reports:

Mark Lundy’s murder convictions have been quashed and he has been granted leave for a retrial by the Privy Council in London.

Lundy was convicted of murdering his wife Christine and daughter Amber in August 2000, and was sentenced to a jail term of at least 20 years.

His case was taken to the Privy Council and a three-day appeal hearing was held in June.

In its decision – released tonight – the Privy Council unanimously decided that Lundy’s appeal should be allowed; that the convictions should be quashed; that Lundy should stand trial again on the charges of murder as soon as possible; and until then, and subject to any High Court decision on bail, Mr Lundy should remain in custody.

I’ve decided that everyone ever charged with murder is innocent.

There’s obviously one very successful serial killer running around that has managed to kill the Swedish backpackers, the Lundys, the Bains, Ben & Olivia and oh year probably Mona Blades also.

They may also have popped over to the US and killed Nicole Simpson.  One can not rule out their involvement in the assassinations of JFK and MLK.

I just hope they never come after me, as if so they will obviously frame someone else for my murder.

Lundy gets a Privvy Council appeal

February 14th, 2013 at 8:01 am by David Farrar

Stuff reports:

Mark Lundy has been granted a hearing in front of the Privy Council to appeal his conviction for murdering his wife and daughter.

The three-day hearing will begin in London on June 17, his lawyer David Hislop, QC, told RadioLive this morning.

Lundy is serving a life sentence with a non-parole period of 20 years after a jury found him guilty of killing his wife Christine and daughter Amber, 7, in a frenzied attack in their Palmerston North home in August 2000.

Two years later he was sentenced to a minimum of 17 years, but that was increased by the Court of Appeal after both Lundy and the prosecution appealed.

Everyone is innocent it seems. I wonder if the same totally unknown anonymous person managed to kill the Lundys, Ben & Olivia plus the Swedish tourists.

It is also understood that Lundy’s previous legal team of Wellington lawyer Christopher Stevenson and Keith Becker, now based in Sydney, were to have appealed on the basis of discrediting brain or spinal tissue found on one of Lundy’s shirts during the police investigation.

Having your dead wife and child’s brain tissue on your shirt was fairly damning evidence. That will be the key to the appeal.
