    A request for a reduced sentence for a man who stabbed his ex-wife to death as she cradled their toddler

    A request for a reduced sentence for a man who stabbed his ex-wife to death as she cradled their toddler


    The lawyer for 34-year-old Ephraim Beazley is asking for a shorter non-parole period.

    Beazley last year admitted to murdering ex-wife, Xi Wang , at her Flat Bush home in December 2018.

    He was sentenced to life in prison, with a 17-year minimum non-parole period.

    Today in the Court of Appeal, his lawyer called the sentence 'manifestly unjust' -- given murdering Wang was a 'snap decision'.

    The Court of Appeal has reserved its judgment.
