A few interesting things emerging from the Judgement. Firstly, Miller (the IHC practitioner) had explained to the Court at trial that traces of unknown DNA may have come into contact with the shirt from someone sneezing. Later the Court refers to the 'vast' [para 343] distance between where the shirts spots were in order to indicate that there was no accidental contamination of either spot by Christine. The Court dismisses evidence of intruders in the house because of its belief that CNS is proven to be on the shirt, of course no one can now say that CNS is human and it's link to Christine by way of her DNA being found on the shirt has many scientific papers in support of 'spousal' DNA exchange. However suspect male DNA under both deceased persons nails the Court felt was of no moment, nor the lights being on at the house around 11pm shortly after the computer was turned off and at a time a neighbour noticed a sliding door open. The Court also attributed the 'savagery' of the attack to ML despite there is not a single instance of him having ever been violent, being prosecuted for violence, or police called to the address as the result of domestic disturbances.

From the judgement

The post-mortem evidence indicated
that there was food in both Mrs Lundy’s and Amber’s stomachs of a type that is not
available at McDonald’s, and therefore likely to have been consumed at a time
considerably later than around 6 pm.

I think this is a false statement, the evidence was solely from Christine's stomach, non MacDonald fries in a state where they had just been eaten. Photo graph here
