    Baden-Clay sentencing hearing delayed

    Today the Director of Public Prosecutions was successful in his application to delay the sentencing hearing of Gerard Baden-Clay on the substituted charge of manslaughter.

    Chief Justice Catherine Holmes granted the application in the Court of Appeal.

    This means that Baden-Clay will not be sentenced for the substituted charge of manslaughter unless the DPP's application for special leave to appeal and the appeal itself (if special leave is granted), is unsuccessful in the High Court.
