Convicted wife killer battles to clear name
CONVICTED killer Glyn Razzell has said his fight for freedom will continue as the tenth anniversary of his conviction for murdering his wife approaches.
The former banker who lived in Barn Close, Crewkerne, is serving a life sentence but has always maintained his innocence.
He was convicted of murdering his estranged wife Linda in 2003 although her body has never been found after she went missing a year earlier.
Razzell, who moved to Crewkerne from Wiltshire before his arrest, has had two appeals against his sentence rejected but he is now pinning his hopes on a legal test case in the hope it could pave his way to freedom.

Writing on a website dedicated to securing his freedom, he said: "This year marks the tenth anniversary of my conviction for a murder I did not commit.
"Despite several requests, the police continue to refuse (my legal team) access to the Forensic Science Service documents which might contain the evidence to clear me. We await the outcome of a test case in the Supreme Court."
It is understood that Razzell, who had four children with Linda, was moved from HMP Kingston in Portsmouth, to the lower security HMP Guys Marsh, in Dorset earlier this year and he is waiting for the case of Nunn vs the Chief Constable of Suffolk to be heard at the Supreme Court.
Kevin Nunn, who is serving life for killing his ex-girlfriend, wants forensic evidence re-examined in his challenge. Razzell, 53, also wants access to scientific reports concerning the evidence which was crucial in his conviction – two traces of Linda's blood found in a car belonging to one of his friends. The documents are in a dossier held by Wiltshire Police which said it was unable to comment on Razzell's claims.
However, the force has previously called on him to reveal the location of Linda's body for the sake of their children.
At the time of the murder the pair, whose matrimonial home was in Highworth, Wiltshire, had been in the middle of divorce proceedings.
Mrs Razzell was officially declared dead in 2005 following an inquest.
A spokesman at the Supreme Court said no date had been set for the Nunn case.
