The man jailed for life for the brutal murder of Hampshire grandmother Georgina Edmonds has applied for leave to appeal against his conviction.

37 year old Matthew Hamlen from Bishopstoke was convicted after a second trial when new DNA evidence came to light.

The father of one tortured the pensioner for her bank details before hitting her over the head with a marble rolling pin at her country cottage in Brambridge in 2008.
