Convicted triple murderer Massimo "Max" Sica has lodged his appeal against the convictions and the record 35-year jail sentence he received over the  ugly murder of Fiji-born Singh siblings more than nine years ago.

According to a news.com.au report, lawyers for Sica lodged documents into the Queensland Court of Appeal registry this morning.

It has been just over three weeks since a Supreme Court jury - sitting on the longest criminal trial in Queensland found Sica guilty of murdering his former girlfriend Neelma Singh, 24, Kunal, 18, and Sidhi, 12, in April 2003.

Sica. 42, has appealed his convictions and sentence on 12-grounds and include claims the jury verdict was unreasonable and could not be supported by the evidence.

A copy of the three page appeal document obtained by The Courier Mail says: "The sentence imposed (against Sica) was manifestly excessive."

Sica, in his appeal, claims Queensland's Chief Justice Paul de Jersey had erred in not granting a request for a "Judge Only Order.

A date for the hearing is yet to be set.
