V1 - NTNE01Z01MA FRIDAY NOVEMBER 28 2014 NATION 19 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA Someone else killed Daniel that after Daniels abduction, Jackway had contact with an associate of Cowans. Mr Davis said the jury should have been told by the judge to weigh the possibility of communication between the trio when considering if Cowan was guilty beyond reasonable doubt. If the jury had some doubt about how Mr Cowan came to know that the evidence on the Sunshine Coast was there, then all of a sudden its a completely different case, he told the Court of Appeal. We say theres been a miscarriage of justice ... theres been a substantial miscarriage of justice. But Daniels parents said they were confident the court would uphold Cowans conviction. A decision on the appeal has been reserved for a later date. shine Coast hinterland. On the second day of an appeal, Cowans barrister Peter Davis QC said there was much circumstantial evidence implicating convicted child sex offender Douglas Jackway as the killer. Jackway was originally a prime suspect in Daniels murder after a car matching his was seen near where Daniel was abducted, but police later ruled him out in favour of Cowan. Pointing to evidence at Cowans trial, Mr Davis said BRISBANE: A substantial miscarriage of justice occurred in the Daniel Morcombe murder trial because jurors werent told to consider an alternative theory on the killers identity, a court has heard. Brett Peter Cowans lawyer has argued the trial judge failed to direct the jury to consider that someone else killed Daniel, then told an associate of Cowans where Daniels remains were. Cowan, 45, was convicted of murdering the 13-year-old in March and sentenced to life imprisonment including 20 years without parole. Central to the case were video recordings of Cowan confessing to undercover police and leading them to Daniels remains in the Sun By MIRANDA FORSTER We say theres been a miscarriage of justice Sydneysider Ernie Bowden who turned 103 last week has royal heritage Meet Sydneys secret Prince Ernie SYDNEY: Ernie Bowden still remembers the days when his beloved aunt Elizabeth would call him little prince. Now, almost 100 years later, it has been revealed she wasnt just being affectionate. Mr Bowden, who turned 103 last week, recently had it confirmed he is the long-lost great-great-grandson of German Emperor Kaiser Wilhelm I, king of what was then known as Prussia from 1861-1888. That makes him a prince of sorts. Mr Bowden, said he had long heard talk within his family about the royal link and recalled speaking to his grandfather Kaiser Wilhelms grandson, Louis Dettman about it. The remarkable tale of Mr Bowdens lineage emerged after authors and relatives Jane Stevens and Belinda Dettman started investigating the truth behind rumours of regal blood running in the family and a secret child of Wilhelms named Agnes. The two women, whose book Agnes: The Secret Princess An Australian Story, will be released next month, spent seven years researching, travelling the world and even undertaking DNA testing to confirm the genealogical links. History shows Wilhelm I wed Princess Augusta von Sachsen-Weimar-Eisenach in 1829 after his father decided Wilhelms true love, Princess Elisa Radziwill, was not worthy of his hand in marriage. But Ms Stevens said it was a littleknown fact that Wilhem and Elisa had a baby in secret before they were forced apart. Their baby, Agnes, was handed to a German foster family, and as an adult she fell in love with a man named Carl Dettman before being spirited off to England and then Australia. In Sydney, she bore eight children, including her eldest son, Louis Dettman Mr Bowdens grandfather. Mr Bowden said he was happy to have the link confirmed, but he remained nonchalant about his heritage. Im not the sort of person to get too excited about these things its just the way it is, he said.
