    A year later and finally a decision. The Court of Appeal have rejected his appeal.

    Rightly so: They made the correct decision, do his time and stop wasting court time and taxpayer $s

    Lundy back in the Supreme court today.

    I still remain hopeful for a decision in his favour. (only because of the quality of the evidence brought to court)

    Good news. Lundy is off to the Supreme Court. (after a very quick decision on his admissibility from the Supreme Court

    there does seem to be reasonable amount of scientific evidence against him even ignoring the brain matter
    There were so many things - "building blocks", as Justice Simon France termed it - that pointed to Lundy. The case against him wasn't frivolous or absurd

    Someone did it so are there any other suspects. None huh. Looks bad

    What was his motive? It was financial wasn't it?

    So much written about this trial.

    Do you think that one day we will be able to see inside someones brain and determine guilt objectively. Will science ever be able to replay what someone saw? We need that in this case.

    I find it hard to believe he smashed his daughter.
    For clarity, nothing I say is advice....

    Thats teh point - the scientific evidence wasnt that great. From the MacD's stomach content to the wifes brain matter - all dodgy as. (just like the speeding race car driver)

    No surprise there at all. NZ police have a very long and sad history of eying up a suspect and then focussing solely on that person to teh exclusion of all others. There was unidentified DNA in the house. Also, while a husband should never have his wifes brain on his shirt you also have to wonder how teh brother in law ends up with her DNA in his bathroom

    The life insurance argument was debunked

    The brain certainly records teh events - the rick is how do we get to replay it. Repressed memory research is growing (and also fraught with difficulty), lie detector tests have proven to be unreliable. I'm not sure how well truth serums work.
