Speedboat executioner Jack Shepherd has lost an intrigue against his conviction for homicide.

Shepherd was imprisoned for a long time for the passing of Charlotte Brown who was tossed from his vessel when it overturned on the River Thames in December 2015.

The 31-year-old tested his conviction of murder by gross carelessness at the Court of Appeal a week ago.

However, his allure was expelled by Sir Brian Leveson on Thursday.

Shepherd’s attorneys had contended the conviction was hazardous as some proof at his preliminary originated from a meeting during which he was not advised or offered a specialist on account of a “botch” by police.

Giving his choice, Sir Brian stated: “When allowing leave (to bid), the single judge pointed out that the litigant ought not be overoptimistic with regards to the result.

“That notice was farsighted. The intrigue against conviction is expelled.”
