Wayne Paul Eisnor, who was convicted in September of killing his wife Tina Mae Eisnor, is appealing his first-degree murder conviction.

Wayne Paul Eisnor shot and killed Tina Mae Eisnor in the parking lot of a New Germany grocery store in June 2010. Eisnor also suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head in that incident and claims to have no memory of what happened.

That memory loss will form the basis of his appeal.

Eisnor was convicted in September after a jury trial at the Supreme Court of Nova Scotia in Bridgewater. It took more than two years for that trial to happen because Eisnor's mental state was being questioned.

At one point, Eisnor was ruled unfit to stand trial. That eventually changed. At his trial, the Crown acknowledged that brain damage caused by the bullet wound has erased Eisnor's memory of the shooting and the six months leading up to it.

First-degree murder comes with an automatic life sentence of 25 years. 

The Crown and Eisnor's defence team will meet via teleconference next month to discuss how and when Eisnor's appeal will proceed.
