Kevin Lane was convicted in 1996 of the murder of Robert Magill in what was described as a gangland shooting. He has been protesting his innocence ever since. His case is now on the way to being heard in the Court of Appeal; his grounds of appeal are based on the later convictions of Christopher Spackman, a police officer who was at the centre of his case, for a series of offences of theft and dishonesty, and on the later conviction of Kevin’s co-defendant at trial, Roger Vincent, for a later gangland shooting.
His appeal is being prepared by Joel Bennathan QC, leading James Mehigan of Tooks Chambers, instructed by Maslen Merchant of Hadgkis, Hughes and Beale.
