Appeal for woman convicted of hiding infant remains

Appeal for woman convicted of hiding infant remains WINNIPEG - An appeal hearing is being held today for a Winnipeg woman who was convicted of hiding the remains of six babies in a rented storage locker. Andrea Giesbrecht was sentenced in July to 8 1/2 years in prison for concealing the remains. Her trial was told she had conceived the babies over many years and put the remains in plastic bags and containers inside a U-haul storage locker. They were discovered by workers who opened the locker in October 2014 after Giesbrecht fell behind on her payments. Giesbrecht's lawyer, Greg Brodsky, has said the appeal will argue she was saving the bodies of the fetuses, not disposing of them.

Amsel, 52, was convicted last month of sending letter bombs to his ex-wife and two lawyers in 2015, as well as setting an explosive outside his ex-wife's home two years earlier.

One of the letter bombs exploded, causing severe injuries to Winnipeg lawyer Maria Mitousis, who had represented Amsel's ex-wife in a dispute over a company the couple had owned. The bomb was contained in a recording device, which exploded when Mitousis pressed a play button. She lost her right hand and underwent numerous surgeries.

The explosion led police to intercept two other letter bombs, one of which had been sent to a law firm that had represented Amsel in another dispute between the couple.

Amsel testified he was the victim of a set-up — that his wife and others were working to frame him.

The Lockerbie bomber has been granted leave to appeal against his conviction .

He was convicted based on DNA evidence, handwriting analysis of the letters and other items. Provincial court Judge Tracey Lord said Amsel acted in a callous and vengeful way, refused to accept responsibility for his actions, and had conspiracy theories that led him to seek revenge on those he thought had wronged him.

Last month, Lord sentenced Amsel to life with no chance of parole for 10 years for the letter bombs, with an additional 12-year term for the earlier attempt on his ex-wife.

Amsel's notice of appeal again points to the DNA evidence.

"The learned trial judge committed overriding palpable error in her findings of fact pertaining to continuity and integrity of the exhibits determined to have the accused's DNA on them," the document states.

Amsel's appeal notice also says Lord erred in her analysis of the handwriting evidence, her analysis of the credibility of Amsel's ex-wife and other matters.
