Chris Dawson to face murder trial as final legal bid fails
Posted On April 8, 2022
This morning the High Court dismissed Mr Dawson’s special leave application, the final bid to permanently halt the proceedings.
The 73-year-old is expected to stand trial in NSW next month.
The trial is estimated to run for eight weeks.
Mr Dawson has pleaded not guilty to killing his wife, who was last seen at their Bayview home in 1982.
He has repeatedly insisted Lynette is still alive.
He remains on bail in Queensland.
