TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — About a month after sentencing, Sigfredo Garcia is appealing his first degree murder conviction.

Garcia was sentenced to life for killing Dan Markel last month. Right now, Garcia doesn't have an attorney for the appeal process.

Saam Zangeneh, his attorney during the trial had this to say back in October.

"I'm not an appellate attorney so I have thoughts about the severance issue and certain issues that came up in the case but I'm not an appellate attorney and since this is a death penalty case, this is going to go straight to the Supreme Court," said Zangeneh.

Garcia also filed that he has no income and no financial assistance.
