LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - A Laramie man found guilty for his part in an arson-for-hire case is appealing his conviction to the Wyoming Supreme Court.

The Laramie Boomerang reports (https://bit.ly/1YbvjnJ ) that attorneys for 40-year-old Ryan Brown filed a brief on March 25 claiming Brown was denied due process due to improperly admitted evidence and requesting a new trial.

In May, Brown was convicted of conspiracy to commit murder. Prosecutors say he hired two men to help him plant a pipe bomb and burn down a fourth man’s home. Brown was sentenced to life in prison, with the possibility of parole.

Brown’s attorneys say jurors were shown evidence that shouldn’t have been admitted, including a video of a pipe bomb detonation and a bank statement.
