The three men found guilty of first-degree murder of a Regina man earlier this year are appealing their verdict and have filed notice to the Saskatchewan Court of Appeal.
26 year old Joshua Wilson, 26 year old Jonathan Peepeetch and 35 year old Dennis Thompson were all handed life in prison sentences with no chance of parole for 25 years for the beating death of Shawn Douglas in August of 2014.
During the trial, court heard how Douglas had gone to a home for a party where a plan was hatched to rob him. He was stuffed into the trunk of a car and taken out of the city where he was bludgeoned to death with tools.
All three are saying their convictions should be thrown away, and a new trial should be ordered on a number of grounds including an error by the judge in instructions to the jury, misproper representation, and unfair prosecution tactics were used by the Crown.
