    Disgusted that Gerard Baden Clay had his murder conviction reduced to manslaughter on appeal.
    Didn't he have every opportunity during trial to explain what happened and still maintained he had nothing to do with it?
    What is this? Second chance draw?
    I could tell the truth but choose not to - until I don't get the outcome I want, so I provide another option and essentially get off.
    I know I don't know the ins and outs. I know I'm not a lawyer, but something is wrong here.

    The attorney general is apparently looking to appeal today's decision. Could you imagine being one of his kids. He might think it's a win today, but he's still lost because there's no way his kids could ever forgive him for killing their mum..

    Yes I am baffled by this! I thought he claimed he had nothing to do with her death?!? Now he's admitting killing her unintentionally? Or am I just misunderstanding this?

    It's awful.... Oscar Pistorius was also granted bail. Sigh.

    This is my understanding, unless I've missed the point.
    During trial I believe he denied it but now his lawyers are saying there was insufficient evidence to prove he intended to kill her. So I now don't knew if that means they're saying he did it, and it was an accident, or he COULD have done it and it might have been an accident. Well isn't that what the trial was for to offer an alternative?
    Makes me sick.

    None of it points to accidental - life insurance policy, the affair, dumping her body and lying about it... What an awful slimy man. I hope this is a short-lived reprieve.

    Basically this is what they're saying...

    To be convicted of something there has to be no reasonable doubt that you are guilty of that particular crime. They found that although they have no doubt that he was responsible for her death, they do have doubt that he intended to kill her. Therefore the murder (intent) conviction was overturned, and was replaced with a manslaughter (unintentional death) conviction.

    He still maintains his innocence, but that's irrelevant to the court proceedings...

    If he didn't mean to kill her, why dump her body, why lie about the scratches on his face, why not say to the police "I've killed my wife unintentionally".

    He's evil.
