Woman fights to free sister convicted of murder
Dec 19 2008 by Neil Atkinson, Huddersfield Daily Examiner
A WOMAN battling to win freedom for her sister – jailed for murder – has won a crucial battle.
Susan Green, of Outlane, is fighting to clear the name of her sister Julie Kenyon, jailed in 2003 for murdering their grandmother.
Kenyon was convicted of the murder of 89-year-old Irene Waters at their home in Albion Court, Halifax.
It was alleged she smothered her with a pillow in December, 1996, in what was described as a mercy killing.
But now Kenyon’s case has been referred to the Court of Appeal.
It is expected the case will be heard next year.
Kenyon, 51, is serving at least 12 years after another of her sisters, Carol, had secretly taped an alleged confession.
