Two ex-Canadian police officers who admitted they abandoned a Native man in the freezing cold went before an appeals court on Monday to challenge their conviction and prison sentence.

Ken Munson and Dan Hatchen of Saskatchewan were sentenced to eight months in jail for leaving Darrell Night, a Salteaux First Nations man, in the cold. They are asking for a new trial or, in the alternative, a reduced sentence.
