Convicted killer Susan Blythe Neill-Fraser will this month front court for what could be the final time, in her last-ditch bid to have her murder sentence overturned.
Neill-Fraser was convicted in 2010 of killing her partner Bob Chappell.
Mr Chappell disappeared from the couple’s ketch Four Winds near Sandy Bay on Australia Day in 2009.
His body has never been found.
The case has become an enduring mystery for some, inspiring fervent community debate, as well as a long-running campaign to absolve Neill-Fraser of guilt.
Under a 2015 piece of state legislation, Neill-Fraser launched a final appeal against her sentence in 2017, with her legal team claiming “fresh and compelling” evidence relating to the case had been uncovered.
The appeal commenced in October 2017, but was adjourned due to the inability of a number of witnesses to give evidence at that time.
Now, nearly a year later, it will continue on August 21, with Neill-Fraser set to appear before Justice Michael Brett in Hobart.
