Garry Dubois to appeal McCulkin murder conviction

CONVICTED murderer Garry Dubois has reportedly filed to appeal his conviction to Queensland's highest court. 

Seven News reports court appeal documents have been filed with Dubois, 69, claiming the verdicts against him are unreasonable and they can't be supported by evidence. 

The appeal also reportedly involves a move to have evidence from key witnesses reconsidered.

Dubois was convicted of murdering Barbara McCulkin, 34, and daughters Vicki, 13, and Leanne, 11 by a jury, in Brisbane on November 29.

The Crown case alleged Mr Dubois and Mr O'Dempsey abducted the McCulkins, drove them to a bush location, possibly near Warwick, where Mr O'Dempsey allegedly separated the mother from her daughters and strangled her to death.

The men are then alleged to have raped the children before they were allegedly murdered and buried. 

During the trial Dubois' defence repeatedly questioned the reliability of statements made by witnesses.
