— The attorney for Mike Peterson is getting ready for his client's appeal.

Attorney Tom Maher has prepared the proposed record on appeal, which lists the errors he believes the state made in the original case. He is now hashing out the details with prosecutors.

Peterson was convicted nearly two years ago for killing his wife, Kathleen. He is now serving a life sentence at Nash Correctional Institution.

Maher said the appeal process will take months.
