CONVICTED murderer Kevin Nunn is set to lodge an appeal against his conviction for killing his former girlfriend and setting her body alight.

The 45-year-old salesman, formerly of Wrights Way in Woolpit, was given 22 years in jail after being found guilty by a jury at Ipswich Crown Court on Monday of murdering 37-year-old Dawn Walker.

The body of Miss Walker, an avid fitness enthusiast and scuba diver, was discovered by a dog walker next to the River Lark, in Fornham, near Bury St Edmunds, on February 4 last year.

During the seven week trial, the prosecution claimed Nunn took Miss Walker's body to Duck Sluice Farm in Fornham Park and, after taping it to railings, set it alight with petrol causing 95 per cent burns.

The body was then removed before being dumped close to a footpath near the River Lark, where it was later found.

It is understood the legal challenge, if lodged at crown court, will be based on a matter of law as opposed to new evidence having been unearthed.
