In February 2008 Hadim Kedik (aged 34), a Turkish national with an address at Connolly Street, Clonakilty, Co Cork, was found guilty of murdering mother of three Rose Patterson.
The court heard that, between April 11 and 12, 2007 Kedik stabbed her eight times leaving her to bleed to death in front of their son while he cut his own throat and wrists.
He was jailed for life by Mr Justice Patrick McCarthy. Kedik denied murdering Ms Patterson, and appealed against his conviction.
Today the CCA comprised of Mr Justice Nial Fennelly, sitting with Mr Justice Declan Budd, and Mr Justice John MacMenamin dismissed Kedik's appeal against his conviction.
