DIANNA GAY WRIGHT GETS HEAVY PRISON SENTENCE FOR CRIME
A WOMAN jailed for hacking off a man’s penis after he was killed has launched an appeal against her nine-year prison sentence.
Dianna Gay Wright admitted to cutting off Noel Clark’s genitals after two male associates allegedly bashed the Maryborough man to death in 2009.
In September 2012, Wright pleaded guilty to manslaughter and interfering with a corpse, and received a jail sentence of nine years.
Yesterday, the Department of Justice and Attorney-General confirmed Wright had filed an appeal against this sentence.A spokesperson for the department said the appeal was heard in Brisbane earlier this month, and the judgment has been reserved.
When she was originally sentenced last year, the court heard Wright met Mr Clark at Maryborough’s Centrelink office in 2009 and drove him to her house with the knowledge two men were waiting to attack him.
Once inside Wright’s home, the men allegedly bashed Mr Clark, sprayed his face with a substance, tied him up and left him to die on the bathroom floor.
When one of the men checked his pulse and said “he’s dead”, they allegedly wrapped Mr Clark in a doona, placed him in the boot of their car and waited until after dark to drive the body out of Maryborough.
