Lawrence Killer Loses Appeal Bid

10 May 2013, 11:32

One of the two men jailed for the racist murder of teenager Stephen Lawrence has lost a challenge against his conviction.

Three judges at the Court of Appeal rejected an application brought by David Norris.

He had made a renewed application seeking permission to appeal against his murder conviction.

Gary Dobson, the second man jailed for life for the murder, had previously dropped his appeal.

A gang of five or six people set upon 18-year-old A-level student Stepehn Lawrence in Eltham, south-east London, in 1993.
