Man jailed for 1975 murder of Ilford neighbour loses appeal to be released
A convicted murderer has failed in his bid for freedom after pursuing an appeal in the High Court.
Gary Allen, 56, formerly Gary Tree, will remain behind bars after Lord Justice Beatson rejected his case against the Parole Board on Friday at the Court of Appeal.
Allen was jailed for life in 1976 for the murder of his neighbour Anne Rosenwold, 36, who he stabbed to death at her home in Ilford.
He was freed on licence in 1992 but was brought back to prison 12 years later accused of strangling 56-year-old Jane Thrussell to death in Dagenham, on June 19, 2005, which he denied.
Her body was found at her house after a colleague reported her missing for days.
