The Crown says it is appealing the recent verdict against a former Quebec doctor who murdered his two kids.
Guy Turcotte was found not criminally responsible in the stabbing deaths of his five-year-old son and three-year-old daughter.
The jury's decision on July 5 outraged many Quebecers.
Turcotte admitted to having caused their deaths in 2009, but denied criminal intent.
He was on trial on two counts of first-degree murder.
Quebec's director of criminal and penal prosecutors said in a statement today it is appealing the verdict because of the judge's instructions to the jury.
