Sandy Bay man, 51, accused of perverting justice in Neill-Fraser appeal

Yet another person has been charged with perverting the course of justice in relation to convicted killer Sue Neill-Fraser’s appeal, the third individual to be charged in the space of a week.

Police are accusing a 51-year-old Sandy Bay man of influencing a witness to manufacture evidence.

The accused will appear in the Hobart Magistrates Court this afternoon.

“The actions of a number of people are being investigated and … the investigation will be ongoing for some time,” police said.

Neill-Fraser was convicted of killing her partner Bob Chappell on a yacht in 2009.

Last week, Karen Patricia Nancy Keefe, 41, was charged with perverting the course of justice and corrupting a witness.

Then, on Monday, a 57-year-old man was also charged with perverting the course of justice.

Anyone with information they believe could assist police in their investigation is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
