David Folker appealing 2nd degree murder conviction
Two months after he was found guilty of second-degree murder in the July 2010 death of his girlfriend, Ann Marie Shirran, David Folker is appealing his conviction.
One of Folker's lawyers, Jason Edwards, filed a notice of appeal on Wednesday in St. John's.
Folker, 43, was found guilty by a 12-member jury on Nov. 8, 2013. In December, he was sentenced to life without the chance of parole for 15 years.
Folker's lawyers have filed only a notice of appeal for the murder conviction. There has been no application in connection with Folker's other conviction for performing an indignity to a human body.
There is no word on when the appeal will be heard.
