A man who was jailed for the murder of a 78-year-old peace campaigner has lodged an appeal against his conviction.
Andrew George, of Meadow Farm Drive, Harlescott, Shrewsbury, Shropshire, was jailed for life earlier this month for the murder and kidnap of Hilda Murrell.
He has signed legal papers to appeal, which were submitted to Stafford Crown Court on Tuesday.
Ms Murrell was stabbed and left to freeze to death on March 21, 1984. Her body was found three days later in a wood. She died of hypothermia after being sexually assaulted and stabbed four times.
George, (37), who denies the killing, was told he must serve a minimum term of 15 years.
Miss Murrell was a prominent anti-nuclear campaigner and her death spawned several conspiracy theories, including that she had been murdered by a security operative.
