Sianis makes up six of the seven men found guilty of murdering De Ieso, who have filed a notice to appeal their convictions.

The jury did not reach a verdict for an eighth man charged, who maintains his innocence and will face a retrial on a date to be set.

The ABC obtained notice of appeal paperwork for the six men, which outline the numerous grounds of appeal each accused intends to plead.
