ELKO, Nev. (AP) — A man facing murder charges in the 2011 shooting deaths of a Utah couple in a two-state crime spree that already has him serving up to 56 years in a Nevada prison is appealing his conviction for kidnapping during a botched carjacking at a Wendover casino.

Utah prosecutors filed murder charges against 26-year-old Logan McFarland in Sanpete County in May after he was sent to the Ely State Prison for six felonies including kidnapping, robbery and car theft.

The Elko Daily Free Press reports Farland's appeal filed this week with the Nevada Supreme Court seeks to overturn his convictions for first-degree kidnapping and committing an offense in a stolen vehicle.
