David Woods had a chance to appeal his first degree murder conviction today Tuesday as he took his case to the Saskatchewan Court of Appeal.
The Saskatoon man was convicted in the death of his wife Dorothy in 2014 and was handed a life sentence with no chance of parole for 25 years.
At the time, court had heard Woods hit his wife over the head knocking her out before strangling her to death in 2011. Her body was found wrapped in a tarp in a culvert in January 2012.
The 56 year old had said his appeal was based on four separate items including the fact his former lawyer did not include some evidence that would have helped his case and hurt the Crown’s.
After hearing both sides, the judges have reserved their decision. It is not known when that decision will come down.
