Attorneys for Bernie Tiede officially filed a notice of appeal Friday seeking to reverse last week’s decision that sent the convicted murderer back to prison for life.
The appeal was filed this afternoon in the 123rd district court in Panola County by attorney Mike DeGeurin, who represented Tiede during the re-sentencing trial held in Henderson.
DeGeurin said a motion for new trial will be filed in the near future. The appeal will ask a higher court to review what happened in the three week re-sentencing trial.
Tiede is being held at the Panola County Jail awaiting transfer to a state prison.
