Accused killer Chris Dawson has walked free from a Sydney jail and will head home to Queensland for Christmas, two weeks after he was arrested over the 1982 murder of his first wife, Lyn.

Mr Dawson, 70, was granted bail in Sydney Central Local Court last Monday but remained behind bars in Silverwater Correctional Complex held up by paperwork, which was accepted today.

The process was delayed in part because of an issue with documents relating to the valuation of his Sunshine Coast home, which is part of the $1.5 million surety required to secure his release.

Lawyer Greg Walsh flew up to the Gold Coast on Thursday afternoon to collect the documents himself in a bid to speed up the process but said he was held back by a seven-and-a-half hour plane delay, The Australian reports.

On Friday, Mr Dawson’s bail documents were rejected by the court because of a complication with land deeds.

Mr Walsh said it had been an “ordeal” to get all of the documents required to process his client’s bail.

Mr Dawson’s brother Peter has also put up his Sydney home as security to meet the strict bail conditions which require Mr Dawson to surrender his passport and report daily to Queensland police.
