Murder case dropped against estranged wife
A MURDER case has been dropped against a woman accused of bludgeoning to death her estranged millionaire husband.
Melbourne woman Dianne Faye Griffey was to stand trial in the Victorian Supreme Court today for the murder of Michael Griffey, 45.
Mr Griffey’s body was found in the garage of the family’s home in January, 2006.
The father-of-three appeared to have been attacked with a blunt metal object and had been dead for several days when he was found.
Today, crown prosecutor Geoffrey Horgan SC said the case against Ms Griffey was doomed.
Justice Philip Cummins discharged Ms Griffey, telling her she was free to go.
She made no comment as she left court.
