The Commission says it considers "there is a real possibility that the Court will quash the conviction".
– Criminal Cases Review Commission
The Commission’s referral is based in part on new evidence that a number of officers from South WalesPolice who were involved in the Lynette White murder inquiry (the Cardiff Three case), and the Philip Saunders murder inquiry (the Cardiff Newsagent Three case), were also involved in Mr Charlton’s case and may have used investigative techniques similar to those used in the Lynette White and Philip Saunders cases and which contributed to the quashing of the convictions in those cases.
It also said a number of other factors were behind its decision:
- The credibility of a number of prosecution witnesses
- Concerns about "oppressive handling by the police of key witnesses which arguably mean that the trial amounted to an abuse of process"
- Officers breaching rules over evidence and questioning suspects
The Criminal Cases Review Commission has referred the murder conviction of Alan Charlton to the Court of Appeal.
Mr Charlton pleaded not guilty to the murder of 15-year-old Karen Price, but was convicted in February 1991 at Cardiff Crown Court. He was sentenced to life, with a tariff of 15 years, and remains in prison.
Karen Price vanished in 1981. Her remains were found wrapped in a carpet in the garden of a house in Riverside, Cardiff in December 1989.
The basement flat at the property had been occupied by Mr Charlton at the time of Karen Price's disappearance.
Alan Charlton appealed against his conviction in 1994, but it was dismissed.
His co-defendant Idris Ali had his initial conviction quashed, and at a retrial that year pleaded guilty to manslaughter. He was released, having already served five years in jail.
Police say 85 year-old John Roberts, who lived locally, was involved in an accident at Mill Road, Ely, Cardiff on Saturday.

Velindre Hospital in Cardiff is one of eight hospitals in the UK to take part in a new study looking at how to treat end-stage lung cancer, focusing on cancer that has been caused by prolonged exposure to asbestos.
The study will assess the targeting of cancer stem cells and a potential new treatment for pleural mesothelioma - an aggressive form of lung cancer strongly linked to asbestos exposure.
According to latest figures it is the most rapidly increasing cancer amongst women in the UK and the number of deaths caused by the disease each year has grown to more than 2,500.

The First Minister insists the proposed Pinewood Studios project in Wales is different to a previous, similar plan, nicknamed 'Valleywood'.
The Chief Executive Officer of Pinewood Shepperton says a new film studio in Cardiff will "do much to boost the Welsh film and television sector".

We are delighted to have agreed with the Welsh Government to advise it on its television and film funding initiative. This builds on our success with Pinewood Pictures and managing the Isle of Man Treasury Film and Television Fund. Our combined advisory investment funds now total £55 million, making them one of the largest investment portals for new British television and film content.
The new fund together with the new facility will do much to boost the Welsh film and television sector. The fund is also another step forward for creating a sustainable UK film and television production centre.
The new Pinewood Studio Wales will be based here in Wentloog in a building formerly used by environmental company G24i.
The space will be transformed into four studios.
Actors Matthew Rhys and Michael Sheen have welcomed news that Pinewood Studios is to create a new studio in Cardiff.
– Matthew Rhys
This is more good news for Wales, and recognition of our place on the world stage as a destination for film and television drama production. Pinewood is a massive name in film and it’s great that more of the many talented people in Wales will now have a chance to ply their trade at home. Having a studio like this on their doorstep will also inspire a new generation of actors and film makers from Wales.
– Michael Sheen
This appears to be great news for Wales and a logical next step building upon the huge success of the revitalised Welsh entertainment industry. It's always a precarious business to attempt such a large undertaking, but it points to the confidence, the expertise and the creative spirit of the people of Wales and I hope it can help the country come closer to realising its hopes for the future.
