AN APPEAL against the conviction of Guildford man Malcolm Webster will continue today (September 27).
Malcolm Webster was jailed for more than 30 years.
Webster, 53, was jailed for murdering his first wife Claire Morris in 1994 and the attempted murder of his second wife five years later.
He told police it was an accident when he set his Daihatsu 4x4 alight with a drugged Mrs Morris inside it after careering it off the road.
He was convicted of trying to kill his second wife in a similar car crash in New Zealand. Webster denied the offences but was found guilty at the High Court in Glasgow in 2011.
Webster's defence lawyer has argued a late witness in the trial should not have been allowed to give evidence. The appeal continues.
