    Nope, there wasn't a hope in hell that Chris accidentally injured Lyn. That would mean Joanne had no place to return to and the thought of Joanne enjoying herself with a group of people her own age was too much for him to bare. He urgently needed a sitter as well.

    Chris Dawson in court accused of murder

    28 mins ago
    ...
    Chris Dawson is expected to apply for bail after he was charged with the alleged murder of his wife Sydney mother-of-two Lynette Dawson almost 40 years ago.

    The 70-year-old former rugby league player, who intends to plead not guilty, faced Sydney Central Local Court via video link on December 6 charged with the murder of his wife on Sydney's northern beaches in early 1982.
    .....
    His lawyer, Greg Walsh, said at the time he "strenuously asserts his innocence" and that Dawson was "anxious and stressed about the situation" and planned to plead not guilty.

    Dawson is due to face the same court on Friday.

    Reporter in the video in this article says he is expected to appear by video link this morning at around 9:30.
    ... with the DPP now confident in their case against Chris Dawson.

    No argument there. If you hit someone and the result is far worse than you expected it doesn't make it any better.

    I still class Chris Dawson (allegedly anyway) as a murderer whether it was a premeditated act or otherwise.

    In any case, team Dawson have pushed too far and for too long with 'Lynne ran away' to now turn around and plead manslaughter.

    I just have a mental picture of Chris Dawson being wheeled into the court connected to an oxygen cylinder ala Chris Skase or pretending to have lost his marbles ala Alan Bond. Stand by for the theatrics.

    One of the articles I read said that it was expected to be a fairly long bail hearing, due to the strongly opposing positions of the defence and the prosecution. Shame the journos don't seem to be able to tweet about the ongoing proceedings.

    I've been envisioning him at some stage saying, "But sir, I'm not Chris, I'm Paul." Meanwhile . . . the other twin has absconded.

    In other words, "I don't want my life to change at all while I am waiting for my trial for Lyn's murder".
    Even though he has had almost 40 years of freedom, when he may not have deserved any of that at all.

    Magistrate told him to keep quiet ... [​IMG]

    Chris Dawson scoffs and says "you're kidding" as Crown tells the court he's a flight risk because he could easily use his identical twin brothers passport to flee the country if given bail. Magistrate tells him it's best if he keeps quite
