SASKATOON – A man found guilty in the shooting death of a Saskatoon mother is appealing his conviction.

Randy O’Hagan was found guilty on May 22 in the shooting death of Lorry Santos on Sept. 12, 2012 and sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 25 years.

Santos, a mother of four who was on maternity leave, was shot after O’Hagan targeted the wrong house after being ordered to kill a former gang member of the White Boy Posse.

O’Hagan cited 14 reasons why he should be given a new trial.

Those reasons include the Crown not proving the killing was planned and deliberate, witnesses benefiting by testifying against him and no physical evidence that linked him to the crime.

O’Hagan has also requested to be tried by judge alone if the Saskatchewan Court of Appeal orders a new trial.
