Essex: Jeremy Bamber has appeal bid turned down

Essex: Convicted murderer Jeremy Bamber has lost a bid to appeal against his life sentence for five murders in 1985.

His case will not be referred to the Court of Appeal, the Criminal Cases Review Commission (CCRC) today said.

Bamber was sentenced to a full life sentence in 1986 after being found guilty of murdering his adoptive parents, Nevill and June, sister Sheila Caffell and her two sons Nicholas and Daniel, at their home in Tolleshunt D’Arcy near Maldon in August 1985.

Following a review, the CCRC provisionally concluded not to refer his murder convictions to the Court of Appeal.

A spokesman for Essex Police said: “Essex Police has co-operated throughout with the CCRC in this matter and has no further comment to make at this time.”
