Dansie was found guilty in December of the murder of his wife Helen, 67, by pushing her wheelchair into a pond at Veale Gardens, in the Adelaide parklands, in 2017.

But in the Court of Criminal Appeal on Monday, defence counsel Greg Mead SC argued the verdict, delivered by a judge alone, was unsupported by the evidence.
