A Pembrokeshire pensioner who was convicted of two double murders last year, has today (Thursday) had his appeal application dismissed.
John William Cooper had applied to the Criminal Court of Appeal sitting in Cardiff for leave to appeal against his convictions for the murders of brother and sister Richard and Helen Thomas at Scoveston in 1985 and the coast path ‘executions’ of husband and wife Peter and Gwenda Dixon four years later.
This application has been dismissed by the Court of Appeal.
