Two sisters who were jailed for brutally killing a mother of eight from Swindon have lodged appeals against their sentences.

Charice Gassmann, 19, was jailed for life with a minimum of 19 years for stabbing Alison Connolly, 49, after an argument over a moped last year.

Her sister Amberstasia, 23, was sent to prison for 12 years for manslaughter.

Both are appealing over their sentences and Charice is also appealing against her conviction.
