Tracie Andrews, who was jailed for life for the roadside murder of her fiance has been granted leave to appeal against her conviction, it emerged last night.

Andrews, 28, who was found guilty at Birmingham Crown Court last July of murdering Lee Harvey, 25, of Alvechurch, Worcestershire, in December 1996, has been granted leave to challenge her conviction after her legal representatives lodged an appeal, police said.

A West Mercia Police spokesman said: "West Mercia Police can confirm that the Crown Prosecution Service have been advised by the Court of Appeal that Tracie Andrews has been given leave to appeal against her conviction."
