Appeal decision due on Baden-Clay murder case

THE Queensland Court of Appeal will tomorrow hand down its decision on whether a jury wrongly convicted Gerard Baden-Clay of murder.

It is more than four months since Gerard Baden-Clay's lawyers argued why the real estate agent should not have been convicted.

They told the Queensland Court of Appeal Baden-Clay could have unintentionally killed his wife Allison during an argument and dumped her body because "he panicked".

Baden-Clay, who went to school in Toowoomba, has always maintained he did not murder Allison, who grew up in Ipswich, at their Brookfield home in April 2012 and claims the scratches on his face came from shaving.

If successful, Baden-Clay could be released from prison. If the appeal is rejected, he can still apply to the High Court of Australia to contest the conviction.

The judgment will be handed down at 9.30am.
