A Saskatoon man found guilty of first degree murder in 2014 for the death of his wife is trying to get the conviction overturned in Regina Tuesday as he appears at the Saskatchewan Court of Appeal.
David Woods is currently serving a life sentence at the Saskatchewan Penitentiary with no chance of parole for 25 years.
In November of 2011, Dorothy Woods went missing. She was found in January 2012 in a culvert near Blackstrap Lake. She had been bludgeoned and strangled to death and her body was wrapped in a a tarp.
Woods has always maintained his innocence despite the fact he reportedly admitted guilt privately after he had been convicted.
In a rare move, the Saskatchewan Court of Appeal has granted the media permission to live stream from the courtroom. It is the third time cameras have been allowed in a Saskatchewan courtroom and the first time it has been done in a case heard by the Saskatchewan Court of Appeal.
