No Butterworth trial

Tasmania Police won't be laying charges over the 1969 murder of Hobart's Lucille Butterworth after accepting the advice of the Director of Public Prosecutions.

It's been decided that there's not enough admissible evidence to achieve a murder conviction, even though a coronial inquiry concluded a person of interest had carried out the crime.

Lucille's brother Jim Butterworth has spoken being devastated at the latest outcome.
