Claremont serial killings judgement day – 20 years in the making
The verdict in WA’s longest running and most expensive murder trail will be handed down this morning, bringing to an end a murder mystery that has haunted the state and three families for more than 20 years.
The accused Claremont serial killer, Bradley Robert Edwards, is charged with the 1996 and 1997 murders of Sarah Spiers, Jane Rimmer and Ciara Glennon.
The 51 year old denies ever being involved in the abduction and murders of the three women.
After more than 200 witnesses and a million pages of evidence during the 95 day trial, today Justice Stephen Hall will hand down his verdict.

6PR Reporter Jake Battrick is outside the District Court where Perth people have gathered to get inside to watch the verdict.
This mother and her daughter have been lining up all morning outside the district court, to catch a glimpse of WA’s biggest murder trial. “I used to go out in Claremont at the time and have three daughters, I think this has affected everyone.”
