Mon 13 Sep - Decision on appeal to be made
Scott Watson's lawyers will meet to decide whether to appeal the 28-year-old's conviction for murdering Ben Smart and Olivia Hope this week.
Watson is serving life a life sentence after the jury in the High Court in Wellington delivered guilty verdicts on Saturday after 22 hours of deliberation.

Watson's parents, Chris and Beverly have so far not commented on the outcome of the three month trial.

Defence lawyers have ten days to file an application to appeal the double-murder conviction.
