David Woods appeals first-degree murder conviction
SASKATOON – A little more than a week after being found guilty of first-degree murder in the death of his wife, David Woods is appealing his conviction.
Global News received confirmation that an appeal was filed on Friday with the Saskatchewan Court of Appeal.
Woods, 51, was given a life sentence with no chance of parole for 25 years in the death of his wife, Dorothy.
Dorothy’s body was found in a culvert near Blackstrap Lake nearly two months after she was reported missing in November 2011.
She had been wrapped in poly and bound with a rope.
At the time, David Woods’ attorney Michael Nolin said that his client still maintained his innocence.
The appeal notice claims a number of errors were made during the trial
No date for the appeal has been set.
