HORTON YOUTH SECOND DEGREE MURDER TRIAL CONTINUES IN PEMBROKE
11/9/2017 8:21:44 AM
The trial of a Horton youth, accused of second-degree murder in the death of a 60 year old man continues in Pembroke court. Court heard from Katlyn England, a civilian Operational Intelligence Analyst employed at the OPP's Orillia headquaters. Ms England's task in the investigation was to look into the suspect's cell phone use on, and after the day of the alleged murder. Her testimony was followed by a Literacy teacher at Renfrew Collgeiate Institute, who gave her perceptions on the state-of-mind of a close family member of the accused who was enrolled in her program in 2016. Testimony from four OPP officers followed, all of whom had attended the August 13th 2016 crime scene. Police say they were called to the Cobus Road home by the accused, who initially called to report a missing person at 11:35 that evening, but who was arrested on the murder charge less than half an hour later. Police say the 17 year-old appeared agitated, and wanted to observe as officers searched a basement storage area where the 60 year old man's body was subsequently discovered. Neither the accused or the victim can be identified under the youth criminal justice act, as the suspect was under 18 at the time of the alleged murder.
