JEREMY Bamber, convicted 16 years ago of slaying his family in a bid to get his hands on a massive inheritance, will launch an Appeal Court bid to clear his name in October.

After a sensational trial, Bamber, now 39, was found guilty at Chelmsford Crown Court in 1986 of shooting dead his adopted parents June and Neville, sister Sheila Caffell and her six-year-old twin sons, Nicholas and Daniel at the family farmhouse in Tolleshunt D'Arcy, Essex.

Three Appeal Court judges yesterday said Bamber's challenge against this conviction, which is set to last for six weeks will begin on October 14.
