A NSW Man Jailed For 15 Years Challenges His 1983 Murder Conviction

A man jailed for at least 15 years is challenging his conviction for the 1983 murder of a Sydney nurse whose body has never been found. 

In the NSW Court of Criminal Appeal on Wednesday, lawyer Greg James QC challenged the admissibility of evidence which led the trial judge to find that Robert James Adams had a tendency to choke women to force them into having sex. 

Adams, 64, was jailed in March after the judge found him guilty of murdering Mary Louise Wallace, 33, in September 1983 after offering the drunk nurse a lift home from a Crows Nest wine bar.
