Last updated at 10:45, Wednesday, 08 August 2012
THE man jailed for life for the brutal murder of Hexham pensioner Judith Richardson is bidding to appeal against his conviction.
Graeme Jarman was found guilty of murder last month after a three-week trial at Newcastle Crown Court.
Miss Richardson (77) was found dead in her home in St Wilfrid’s Road in August last year. She had been struck repeatedly across the head with a hammer.
Jarman has made an application to the Court of Appeal, and in due course a judge will decide whether to grant him leave to appeal against the conviction.

THREE watercolour paintings donated by Queen Mary were auctioned off to raise money for a new Darby and Joan club in Hexham.
A site had already been bought, but a further £6,000 was needed to run the club for the elderly.
The auction, opened by Viscountess Allendale, saw the paintings raise over £8 for the fund.
