The wife of a former Royal Marine from Somerset jailed for killing a wounded Afghan fighter is beginning a fresh legal bid to clear his name.
Alexander Blackman is serving life for murder but hundreds of supporters are expected to join his wife Claire who is from Taunton when she applies to have the case referred back to the Court of Appeal.
She says the charge should have been manslaughter because of combat stress.
A former Royal Marine from Taunton found guilty of murdering a Taliban fighter was suffering from a 'recognised mental illness' at the time that went undiagnosed - according to psychiatrists.
