2008 murder conviction referred to High Court of Justiciary

The Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission (SCCRC) has referred the case of Wendy Patricia Graham to the High Court of Justiciary for review.

Ms Graham was convicted at Edinburgh High Court on 15 December 2008 of the murder of her partner.

She was ordered to serve at least 11 years in prison before being considered for parole, STV News reports.

In the course of its review, the SCCRC obtained fresh evidence that suggested that Ms Graham’s responsibility may have been diminished.

Ms Graham has always accepted that she was responsible for the killing.

The SCCRC said it appeared to them that “her conviction for murder, rather than culpable homicide, may have been a miscarriage of justice”.
