An Australian man who became the subject of a popular crime podcast has been jailed for 24 years for his wife’s murder.

Chris Dawson was convicted in August after decades of speculation about Lynette Dawson’s 1982 disappearance.

A judge ruled Dawson killed his wife so he could continue his relationship with his teenage lover and babysitter.

His lawyer has indicated he is likely to appeal against the conviction.

Dawson was charged in 2018 after the podcast The Teacher’s Pet – by The Australian newspaper – garnered global attention and prompted a renewed investigation, helping build enough evidence to lay charges.
