The Saskatchewan Court of Appeal has confirmed a man who was found guilty of planning to kill his wife, by drugging her and burning a house down with her inside, will appeal his sentence.
Curtis Vey was sentenced earlier this month to three years in prison for his crime.
Vey’s lawyer said Friday he expects the case to be heard next year.
The co-accused Angela Nicholson is also appealing her sentence.
The appeal, filed by her lawyer, said the presiding judge failed to properly explain to jurors what is necessary to be convicted of conspiracy, specifically how it had to be proven beyond a reasonable doubt Nicholson would have followed through with the plan.
In a secretly recorded conversation three years ago, Vey and Nicholson were heard discussing how they planned to kill their spouses and forge at least one will in an effort to benefit financially.
