Justice Overboard part one

Reporter: Charles Wooley

Producer: Laura Sparkes

Susan Neill-Fraser is behind bars - a grandmother convicted of murdering her partner, Bob Chappell. Convicted by a jury of her peers, she was sentenced to 23 years. But there's one problem: Susan Neill- Fraser is innocent.

That's the unqualified conclusion of some of the finest legal minds in the country, including our leading expert in miscarriages of justice.

Charles Wooley first looked at Susan's case a year ago, and was convinced there was enough reasonable doubt to acquit her at trial. Now, the case to set her free is even stronger, if not undeniable, thanks to the new and compelling forensic evidence which 60 Minutes will reveal for the first time.

EXTRA MINUTES: Charles Wooley on "the court of public opinion".
