Fargo TV station WDAY reports William Hoehn plans to appeal the life sentence with the possibility of parole he was issued Monday for conspiring to kidnap and lying to police in the death of a woman whose baby was cut from her womb.
Hoehn pleaded guilty to the charges last month.
He was acquitted of conspiracy to commit murder in the August 2017 death of Savanna Greywind of Fargo. Hoehn's ex-girlfriend, Brooke Crews, pleaded guilty in Greywind's death and is serving life in prison. She testified against Hoehn at last month's trial.
Hoehn admitted helping to cover up the crime, but said he knew nothing of the murder plot.
A statement released by Hoehn's attorney Tuesday said an appeal will be filed.
