High Court rules on Baden-Clay murder appeal

The High Court ruled this morning that Gerard Baden-Clay’s murder conviction will stand.

In 2014, a jury convicted Baden-Clay of the 2012 murder of his wife, Allison, but the court of appeal downgraded the charge to manslaughter.  His lawyers argued that it was possible that he could have unintentionally have killed his wife during an argument. 

More to come.
