Lake mum case ap­peal

Fraser Coast Chronicle - - NATION -

VIC­TO­RIA’S DPP is ap­peal­ing to the High Court over a de­ci­sion to cut the jail term for a woman who killed three of her chil­dren.

Akon Guode was jailed for over 26 years, with a min­i­mum 20 years, for mur­der­ing her four-year-old twins, killing her 16-month-old son and try­ing to mur­der a fourth child by driv­ing them into a lake in 2015.

The term was re­duced on ap­peal to 18 years, with a min­i­mum of 14 years. Di­rec­tor of Pub­lic Prose­cu­tions Kerri Judd QC has filed an ap­pli­ca­tion to ap­peal the de­ci­sion.
