Eurydice Dixon's Killer To Appeal Life Sentence In Live-Streamed Court Hearing
The man who raped and killed comedian Eurydice Dixon in a Melbourne park as she was walking home will fight to appeal his life sentence.
Jaymes Todd was jailed for at least 35 years after he pleaded guilty to attacking the young woman as she walked through a Carlton North park in 2018.
The 22-year-old woman had spent the night at a comedy gig in the city and was close to home when she was killed.
Todd stalked Ms Dixon for more than an hour and attacked as she walked through Princes Park.
"Your actions in doing so were of pure and unmitigated evil," Justice Stephen Kaye said in sentencing Todd last year.
Ms Dixon had been "totally vulnerable and defenceless" when she was raped and killed in the park and Todd was driven by a "dark and sick fantasy," Justice Kaye said.
The appeal bid will be livestreamed on the Supreme Court of Victoria's website from 10.15am on Tuesday and will be the only place to see the proceedings.
Todd is not expected to be in court for the hearing, but will instead appear via video link.
The three judges who will hear the appeal include Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Victoria Anne Ferguson, Justice Phillip Priest and Justice David Beach.
