We covered the case of Nathan Matthews and Shauna Hoare who were convicted of (respectively) the murder and manslaughter of Becky Watts in November 2015.
On 10th December 2015 we learned that both have lodged appeals against their conviction and sentence. At the moment, we don’t have the basis of what the Grounds would be (there is a standing invitation to anyone who is appealing to publish their grounds, suitably edited), so it’s pretty hard to comment (other than to say that they will have an uphill battle).
We have a fact sheet as to how appeals against conviction and sentence works.
This will be well reported in the media, so we will return to it if and when it gets to the Court of Appeal.
