Murder conviction for woman who killed husband overturned – Channel 4 News


A woman who killed her husband in a hammer attack has won a landmark appeal against her murder conviction. Sally Challen says she spent 40 years being controlled and humiliated by her husband, Richard, and claimed diminished responsibility.
She will now face a retrial after judges heard evidence from a psychiatrist that she was suffering from two mental disorders at the time.
