Rochester, N.Y. (WHAM) - Attorneys for Alex and Colin Rideout confirmed Friday they have filed notices of appeal with the New York State Supreme Court.

Both were convicted earlier this month for their roles in the murder of their father Craig Rideout in July 2016. The men's mother, Laura Rideout, filed her notice of appeal Monday.

Laura and Colin were convicted of murder and tampering with evidence back in July after Craig Rideout was killed in the basement of his Fairport home. Alex was acquitted of murder but found guilty on the tampering with evidence charges.

In July 2016, Craig's body was found, wrapped in a tarp and disfigured by acid, in a wooded area in Jerusalem, Yates County.

Laura's boyfriend, Paul Tucci, was tried for murder and tampering with evidence but was acquitted of all charges.
