Australian Baby killer, Kathleen Folbigg, could soon hear whether she will be granted a judicial review by the New South Wales government. Her lawyers lodged a petition in 2015 casting doubt on forensic evidence used in the case against her during her trial in 2003. The argue the initial case was tainted by unreliable, misleading and outdated medical evidence. Folbigg has always denied killing her children stating that they died of natural causes.
Folbigg is currently serving a 25 year sentence for killing her four children over a 10 year period between 1989 and 1999.
NSW Attorney-General Mark Speakman said the petition “raises complex questions to which I am giving appropriate consideration and have taken extensive advice”.
“I hope to be in a position to make an announcement in the near future,” Mr Speakman said.
Folbigg was found guily of killing her children Caleb, aged 20 days, Patrick aged 8 months, Sarah aged 10 months and Laura aged 18 months.
The NSW Attorney General is expected to make a ruling on the appeal soon.
