VANCOUVER - The Crown is planning to launch an appeal of the second-degree murder verdict of Robert Pickton, B.C.'s Attorney-General said today.

In a surprise move, Wally Oppal has indicated that the Crown will proceed with an appeal in the case, although the criminal justice branch has not yet filed the appeal, Oppal's spokesman Shawn Robins confirmed this evening.

Pickton was convicted Dec. 9 of six counts of second-degree murder and was sentenced to life in prison without parole for 25 years. The prosecution had been seeking convictions of first-degree murder.

The announcement came during a media interview on an unrelated matter, Robins said.
