Killer wife to appeal conviction
Paul Crymble
Paul Crymble's body was found on Father's Day
A County Armagh woman denies she murdered her husband and plans to appeal her conviction.

The revelation came as lawyers made submissions at the sentencing of Jacqueline Crymble, 35, on Wednesday.

The mother-of-two and her lover Roger Ferguson, 31, killed her husband Paul three years ago at their home outside Richhill.

At her trial, the judge told Mrs Crymble that she would serve every day of the sentence given.

Colin Robinson, a friend of Ferguson, was convicted of assisting an offender.

Mr Crymble, a father of two, was discovered with a plastic bag taped tightly round his neck, and his feet and hands bound with cable ties on 20 June 2004.

His wife had claimed four masked men broke into the family home looking for drugs and money before attacking and kidnapping her 35-year-old husband.

During the trial, a jury heard four months of evidence but took just under three-and-a half hours to reach its verdict.

Sentencing has been adjourned until Wednesday, 27June.
