A DATE has been set for one of WA’s most notorious murderers – Jemma Victoria Lilley – to appeal her conviction for the death of Rockingham teen Aaron Pajich-Sweetman in 2016.

Lilley was jailed for the murder along with co-offender Trudi Lenon and will appear the conviction on April 10.

Lenon has not appealed her murder conviction.

The pair faced trial for the murder in October 2017.

They were both found guilty by a jury after the five-week long trial and were sentenced in February 2018 to life imprisonment with a non parole period of 28 years.

Lilley was found to have been obsessed with serial killers and with the help of her housemate at the time, Lenon, they lured Mr Pajich-Sweetman to Lilley’s Broughton Way home in Orelia on June 13, 2016.

Once he arrived there he was stabbed to death and buried under a concrete slab in the property’s backyard.

During sentencing Justice Stephen Hall said it was a morally repugnant crime and would create feelings of “horror and revulsion” in right-thinking people.

The crime shocked the people of Kwinana with its brutality and his death resulted in an outpouring of grief from the community.
