SECOND DEGREE MURDER TRIAL ADJOURNED UNTIL NOVEMBER 17
11/10/2017 8:53:03 AM
The trial of a seventeen year-old Horton youth on second-degree murder charges is adjourned for a week. When court resumes, we'll hear testimony of two witnesses by video link on November 17th at 10am. The youth, who cannot be named due to his age, is charged in the death of a 60 year-old Horton Township man on August 13th of 2016. Thursday's testimony began in Pembroke courtroom three, where translation services were provided for two Montreal Police detectives involved in a post-takedown interview with a brother of the accused in their jurisdiction. Their testimony was scrutinized by the defence down to the point of whether or not there should be quotation marks used in an officer's notebook. The afternoon session heard testimony from a neighbouring relative of the deceased, a friend of the accused's brother, and a number of teachers at Renfrew Collegiate Institute. A common thread to their interrogation centred on whether the sibling had displayed any changes in behaviour over a period of several months before the death. None of those on the stand could confirm that with any certainty.
