Relief as Bamber bid fails.
THE family of mass killer Jeremy Bamber spoke of their relief yesterday after his appeal against conviction failed.
His cousin by marriage Peter Eaton said: "We never doubted it was the only possible decision.
"We've lived a 17-year nightmare. Now we hope to move on, safe in knowing Bamber is behind bars for the rest of his life."
Bamber - now 41 - shot dead his adoptive parents, sister Sheila Caffell, 21, and her six-year-old twin sons so he could claim a pounds 500,000 inheritance.
Police first believed Bamber's suggestion that Sheila killed the other four before turning the gun on herself at the family home in Tolleshunt D'Arcy, Essex.
But a silencer with Sheila's blood on it was found in a gun cupboard.
Bamber - who will never be freed - did not leave Whitemoor jail, Cambs, to hear the ruling by the Appeal Court in London.
Judges who rejected 15 grounds of appeal said they had "no doubt" about the safety of conviction.
