STORY: "Anna-Jane Cheney medical notes expert witness appeal Henry Keogh," by reporter Candice Marcus, published by ABC News on May 27, 2014.

GIST: "The Court of Criminal Appeal has agreed to release an Adelaide murder victim's "sensitive" medical notes for expert analysis. Henry Vincent Keogh is pursuing an appeal against his murder conviction under recent legislation allowing a case to be reopened if there is fresh and compelling evidence. Keogh is serving a life jail sentence with a non-parole term of 25 years for drowning his fiancée Anna-Jane Cheney in a bath at their Adelaide eastern suburbs home in 1994. His lawyer has told the court she is finalising the evidence for the appeal hearing in September and wants a toxicologist in Sydney to assess Ms Cheney's medical notes.........Keogh's lawyer Marie Shaw has been given the court's permission to inspect the notes again so she can discuss them with the expert witness. She says too she is appealing against a rejection of legal aid funding for her instructing solicitor, which had delayed appeal preparations......... There are expected to be four or five days of oral submissions to the court in September. Mrs Shaw says Keogh wants to be at the hearing."
