FONDA -- Murderer Ivan Ramos, 31 appealed his lifetime jail sentence May 9 in connection with the stabbing deaths of two Amsterdam residents last year.

A jury on Feb. 1 found Ramos guilty two counts of first-degree murder for stabbing Cheryl Goss and William McDermott to death. He was sentenced March 20.

Ramos is currently incarcerated at the Attica Correctional Facility.

Other appeals filed at the Montgomery County Clerk's Office last week:

* Scott W. Zabawczuk, 39, of 34 Beaver St., Gloversville, filed an appeal May 9 in connection with a 10 year prison sentence in August 2011. He pleaded guilty to second-degree burglary months before for his role in a home invasion on Brookside Avenue in Amsterdam that year.

A residence was robbed of cash and jewelry after Zabawczuk and two other men reportedly bound the elderly homeowner with duct tape.

Zabawczuk is currently serving his sentence at the Attica Correctional Facility.

* Timothy Dingman, 27, who's primary address was listed as the Riverside Motel in Fultonville, filed an appeal May 7 in connection with a November 2012 court order which designated him as a level 3 sex offender. Dingman was convicted of third-degree rape in 2009.

The state inmate tracker says Dingman was released from prison late last year.
