A schoolboy and a mother-of-three who were jailed for killing a man they wrongly accused of being a paedophile are trying to have their sentences cut.
Williamina Stewart, 37, was jailed for ten years after admitting the culpable homicide of Gordon Morrice.
Paul Noble, 18, was given an eight-year sentence for his part in the attack on the 58-year-old.
Mr Morrice died months after being assaulted at Aulton playing fields in the Seaton area of Aberdeen on June 24, 2010. He suffered a bleed on the brain and died on March 14 last year, nearly nine months after he was attacked.
The attack had happened after Mr Morrice had asked to play with children on a trampoline.
Stewart's partner Paul Yates, 38, and her brother Hector Stewart, 30, admitted a charge of assault.
A fifth person, Robert Laird, 25, had also been accused of murdering Mr Morrice but was acquitted.
The appeals will be heard at the Court of Criminal Appeal in Edinburgh on July 6.
