A man who spent two decades in prison for a murder in Chorleywood he says he didn’t commit has had his Court of Appeal bid to clear his name thrown out by judges. Kevin Lane, 47, was convicted in 1996 of the murder of car dealer Robert Magill, who died in an execution-style shooting in Chorleywood in 1994. Lane, then of Potton, near Bedford, has always claimed he is innocent and last month took his case to the Court of Appeal in London. His lawyers argued his conviction was ‘unsafe’ because a ‘spectacularly corrupt’ detective was involved in the case. But today, returning to court to deliver judgment, top judge Lady Justice Rafferty rejected Lane’s appeal.
