MADISON, Wisconsin — A Wisconsin appeals court has dismissed the appeal of a former Argyle man convicted of murdering his three nephews in a house fire in 2012.

Nineteen-year-old Jeremy Wand was sentenced last August to life in prison for starting fires that killed 7-year-old Allen Wand, 5-year-old Jeffery Wand and 3-year-old Joseph Wand.

The boys' mother, Sharon Wand, was badly burned in the fire and lost the fetus she was carrying. Her 2-year-old daughter, Jessica, survived.

According to court documents, Jeremy Wand set most of the fires in the rented home after his brother — Armin Wand III, the children's father — offered him $300 to help him.

The Wisconsin State Journal (http://bit.ly/1mPQDPt ) reports Jeremy Wand will be eligible for parole after 35 years.

Armin Wand is serving a life term without parole.
