Double killer Hazel Stewart’s bid to overturn her conviction for murdering her husband and ex-lover’s wife will be heard in January.

The former Sunday School teacher was jailed last year for plotting the murders with ex-dentist, Colin Howell.

Trevor Buchanan and Lesley Howell were killed in County Londonderry in 1991.

Stewart, 49, has undergone psychiatric examinations and psychological assessments as part of her attempt to overturn her conviction.

The mother of two was sentenced to a minimum of 18 years, which she is currently serving at Hydebank Prison in Belfast.
