Sion Jenkins is now remarried to millionaire divorcee and former Miss South Seas beauty queen Christina Ferneyhough in 2005 after she wrote to him while he was in prison.

The couple were residing in a $744,425 property in Southsea, Hampshire, at the time.

After serving six years in jail, Jenkins was acquitted of the horrific murder of Billy Joe on February 9, 2006.

He was refused compensation because there was insufficient evidence to show his innocence.

Following his acquittal, Son's ex-wife, Louise, claimed he was abusive to her and their four daughters.

While the couple have been out of the spotlight for a long time, we do know that in 2010, the former deputy headteacher studied criminology at Portsmouth University while his wife worked as a nurse at the Queen Alexandra Hospital in Cosham.

He was convicted, however, when the jury failed to reach a final conclusion after two days.

He was imprisoned for a total of six years.

Last year, the website Justice for Sion Jenkins stated: "Billie-tale Jo's cannot have a happy ending, but it must have an honest ending."

It urged Sussex Police to restart the investigation and "admit that severe mistakes were committed in 1997."

The forensic evidence will now be re-examined by the police to determine if developments in forensic science might yield fresh evidence or avenues of inquiry.

Furthermore, police have stated that no new material has been presented and that the examination is part of the routine evaluation procedure.

The case is not being reinvestigated.
