ST. MAARTEN (WCSC) - An appeals hearing in the cases of three men convicted of killing a Mt. Pleasant couple in the Caribbean is set for Thursday, according to the Daily Herald.

The Daily Herald is reporting that a court in St. Maarten will hear the appeal for the three men convicted in the September 2012 deaths of Mike and Thelma King. 

In May, a St. Maarten judge sentenced Meyshane Johnson to life in prison for the killings. Johnson was found guilty of six charges, including two counts of murder.

Jamal Jefferson Woolford was sentenced to 22 years and Jeremiah Mills was given 28 years for their roles in the incident.

Investigators said the Kings, who have ties to Mt. Pleasant and Columbia, were found tied up and brutally stabbed in their home.
