    Former British Policeman jailed for murdering wealthy wife

    Former Policeman Pushed His Wife Off Cliff



    11:53am UK, Friday September 03, 2010
    Tim Hewage, Sky News Online
    A former British police officer has been jailed for 33 years in Australia - the maximum allowed - after being convicted of the murder of his new wife


    UK-born Des Campbell was given the sentence for pushing his newly-wed third wife, Janet Fisicaro, from a cliff near Sydney in 2005.
    The judge Megan Latham said: "Janet's death must have been truly awful.
    "The position of her shoe print and the broken tree branch... suggests that she was conscious and aware of her fate for some short period of time before she fell."




    Campbell pitched his tent in the most uncomfortable and unsafe spot.


    Campbell, 52, claimed his wife of six months had slipped and fallen from the 160ft (50m) edge while on her way to the toilet during a camping holiday.
    He broke down during questioning but the jury were not convinced by his display of grief.





    Campbell wanted Janet Fisicaro's money to pay off his debts.


    Janet Fisicaro had recently inherited a farming estate worth $500,000 (295,000) and prosecutors claimed Campbell wanted it for himself.
    "He had got as much money out of her as he could and she was then worth more to him dead than alive," the court was told.
    Campbell, who once worked as a police constable in Surrey, had three other girlfriends during the relationship and went on holiday with one of them just weeks after his wife's death.





    Des Campbell used to serve in the Surrey police force


    His brother, Kevin Neander, described him as being "as low as a snake's guts."
    Campbell intends to appeal against his conviction and sentence.

    Earlier report here (Did she fall, or was she pushed?)

    Sure to appeal, so many 'ifs', no witnesses.

    Here he'd likely have got away with it being a suicide.

    Yeah camped in an unsafe spot and she shit herself before she hit the deck.

    Typical plod and he should have been hung, I wonder how many bribes he took while he was in the swine herd? Not to mention the unlucky f*ckers he fitted up during the course of his career!

    Cold execution of a truly awful death

    Another article here from Sydney Morning Herald - has a video but my connection too slow to open

    Cold execution of a truly awful death

    Des Campbell, and the woman he murdered, his wife of six months, Janet.

    IN THE last moments of her life, Janet Campbell must have realised she had made a terrible mistake in marrying Des. While she had been planning their future together, he had been planning her murder.

    The end came six months after they secretly wed. On March 24, 2005, Campbell took his wife on her first camping trip. As the sun set over the Royal National Park, he pushed her off a 50-metre cliff.

    .....and....

    Interviewed by the Probation and Parole Service, Campbell said his first two marriages ended because of his extra-marital affairs.

    His fourth wife, Melissa, a former nightclub singer from the Philippines whom he met on the internet two months after Mrs Campbell's death, is standing by him. They have two young children together.

    Des Campbell jailed for at least 24 years
