A Suffolk man jailed for killing his ex-girlfriend has been granted leave to appeal for a reopening of his case. Kevin Nunn, 50, of Woolpit, is serving a minimum of 22 years in prison for the murder of Dawn Walker, 39, in 2005.
He wants forensic evidence held by Suffolk Police to be re-examined but lost a High Court challenge in May.
A Supreme Court appeal panel, sitting on Wednesday, granted him leave to appeal against the decision. Suffolk Police is yet to comment.
Nunn’s sister, Brigitte Butcher, said family and supporters had been trying to access “unused material and forensic examples” for review by an independent expert.
