A SALESMAN serving life in prison for murdering his ex-girlfriend is to take a lie detector test on television to clear his name.

Kevin Nunn was last year convicted of killing Dawn Walker and setting her body alight next to the River Lark in Fornham, near Bury St Edmunds, in February 2005.

Since the trial, Nunn's family have campaigned to prove the 47-year-old's innocence - even setting up a website and offering a £50,000 reward for information.

But Nunn's younger sister, Donna Mickleburgh, revealed her brother has been asked to feature in a documentary series trying to exonerate convicted criminals.

Mrs Mickleburgh had contacted the NADAC Group, a privately owned polygraph firm after Nunn agreed to take the test following suggestions on the website set up to prove his innocence.

She was then approached by a television company called Eggshell Media and talks are now underway between production bosses about the possibility of airing the documentary - called True Crime - on either BBC, ITV, or Channel 4.
