OTTAWA — The Supreme Court of Canada won't hear the appeals of an Alberta couple convicted of first-degree murder.

Sheena Cuthill and her husband Timothy Rempel were found guilty three years ago of killing Ryan Lane, who had a child with Cuthill before the two parted ways.

Cuthill's brother-in-law was also convicted in the murder plot, and all three guilty parties were sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 25 years.

Testimony at the trial indicated Cuthill and her husband were unhappy that Lane wanted visitation rights with the child he fathered with Cuthill.

Lane's remains were found in a burn barrel about 70 kilometres northeast of Calgary months after he was last seen going to meet someone who said they could help with the custody dispute.

The Supreme Court, following its usual custom, gave no reason for refusing to hear the appeals of Cuthill and Rempel.

CRA decides against taking one of its battles with Cameco to Supreme Court.
OTTAWA — The Canada Revenue Agency says it won't appeal a federal court decision that says the revenue minister doesn't have the authority to compel a company's employees to answer oral questions from the tax collection agency. The decision follows the Federal Court's refusal to order about 25 personnel from Saskatoon-based Cameco Corp. and its subsidiaries to attend interviews and answer oral questions from CRA interviewers. Cameco had agreed to have employees answer written questions but not to do oral interviews with the tax agency.
