HALIFAX – William Sandeson is heading back to court.
The convicted killer and former Dalhousie medical student will be in the Court of Appeals on Aug. 1, 2018, to try to overturn his first-degree murder conviction in the death of 22-year-old Taylor Samson.
Sandeson is serving a sentence of life with no chance of parole for 25 years after a jury found him guilty in July.
Global News reports the reason for the delay in Sandeson’s appeal is due to the length of his murder trial. Transcripts for the two-month trial not expected to be completed until next March.
Samson was last seen on security footage entering Sandeson’s apartment in August of 2015. He was never seen again, and his body has still not been found.
