The attorney for Kevin Ritchie says he plans to appeal his client's sentence of 32 years to life for the murder of Matthew Prego in Auburn. 

Ritchie's defense attorney Rome Canzano says Ritchie was sentenced to the maximum for the charges for which he was convicted. Canzano says his client doesn't think his crime falls into the category of a maximum sentence.  Canzano says the fact that Ritchie did not plan to kill Prego and was under the influence of alcohol when it happened are strong arguments for his client to receive a lesser sentence.
