Cowan Lodges Appeal

Brett Peter Cowan has lodged an appeal against his murder conviction.

Last Wednesday afternoon, Tim Meehan of Bosscher Lawyers filed the notice of appeal in Brisbane.

The notice lists six grounds of appeal, including the admission of the recordings of Cowan’s confessions, instructions to the jury in regards to two defence witnesses, and the two mistrial applications made during the trial.

Cowan was sentenced in March to life imprisonment with a non-parole period of 20 years. The Queensland Court of Appeal will now determine Mr Cowan’s fate in due course.
