‘This is very frustrating’ — Harrison family still waiting for reports on how police, coroners missed homicides in same house

‘This is very frustrating’ — Harrison family still waiting for reports on how police, coroners missed homicides in same house Ten years since the first sudden death in the Harrison family home and more than a year after a triple-murder trial, authorities have offered no public explanation for how a father, mother and son died years apart, under suspicious circumstances, before police concluded a killer was targeting them. Peel Regional Police did not treat the 2009 death of Bill Harrison or the 2010 death of Bridget Harrison as homicides until their son, Caleb Harrison, was murdered on Aug. 23, 2013.

The Crown alleged Lenneil Shaw and Ali-Nur opened fire on Hagley inside the Pizza Pizza in the early hours of Oct. 16, 2016, while Shakiyl Shaw drove the getaway car.

As prosecutors said, the jurors’ task came down to whether or not they believed key Crown witness Winston Poyser, who testified he was with the three leading up to and after the shooting.

Poyser testified he did not know the shooting was going to take place.

The 26-year-old was far from a perfect witness. He had a hard time remembering many details of the night in question, when he was high and drunk. And when confronted with inconsistencies from past statements, Poyser seemed to

Prosecutors suggested his forgetfulness did not bear on his ability to remember who he was with for many hours, nor was it the same as being an outright liar — as was suggested by the defence.

Colton Steinhauer found guilty of 2 counts of 1st-degree murder in fatal Mac’s robberies Colton Steinhauer, one of the three people charged in the deaths of two Mac's convenience store clerks, was found guilty Friday of two counts of first-degree murder. The verdict comes with an automatic life sentence, and now the jury will offer its recommendation on whether Steinhauer should serve his sentences consecutively or concurrently. The judge will make the final decision. The two clerks, Karanpal Banghu and Ricky Cenabre, were killed on Dec. 18, 2015 at two different locations.

Michael Dunn, 47, was convicted of three counts of attempted second- degree murder , but the jury couldn't agree on a verdict regarding a first - degree murder Michael Dunn, 47, found guilty of lesser charges of attempted second- degree murder in connection to shooting death of Jordan Davis.

(Joe Webb) -- The Campbell County Grand Jury has indicted 17 - year - old Makyle Wilson for murder and tampering with evidence in last August's shooting "It's probably one of the best Christmas gifts I could have been given," said D'Angelo Wilson's mother, Shelly Trautman, as she stood among photos

The jury retired Tuesday just before the dinner hour. Within an hour, they were back in court with a question: why did the Crown not call more witnesses to corroborate its case? Superior Court Justice Robert Clark to jurors not to speculate on evidence that wasn’t called.

The police investigation led to the discovery of a licence plate on the black SUV that was used as the getaway car and traced to Poyser’s mother. He was arrested and charged with first-degree murder and agreed to give a statement to police implicating the Shaw twins — two long-time friends — and Ali-Nur, whom he met that evening.

Poyser, 26, pleaded guilty to being an accessory after the fact to murder and was sentenced to 18 months imprisonment. The prosecution said “he got the sentence that he deserved for what he did,” and that he got no favours from them or police.

The defence lawyers said he lied to get a sweet deal.

Supreme Court to rule on whether Cindy Gladue's accused killer will face new trial

Supreme Court to rule on whether Cindy Gladue's accused killer will face new trial The Supreme Court of Canada rules today on a high-profile case involving the death of an Indigenous woman — a case that sparked nationwide protests and revived the debate about Canada's prostitution and sexual consent laws. Cindy Gladue died in the bathtub of an Edmonton motel room eight years ago, bleeding out from an 11 cm wound to her vaginal wall. Today, the Supreme Court of Canada will decide if Bradley Barton — the man tried and acquitted of first-degree murder in her death in 2015 — faces a new trial. The Ontario trucker — who paid Gladue $60 for sex — described his sexual activity with her as rough but consensual.

A jury on Thursday found former Palm Beach Gardens officer Nouman Raja guilty of manslaughter while armed and attempted first - degree murder in the 2015 shooting death of Corey Jones, a black motorist who was stranded on Interstate 95.

George Zimmerman is not guilty of the murder of Trayvon Martin, a Florida jury has decided.

Tice said while Poyser was not “a perfect witness,” his memory “not ... entirely reliable on specific details,” he “did the right thing here by testifying as to what happened that night.

“He spent more than a week in court fearing that he could get shot for it. I suggest that’s a pretty courageous thing to do.”

Rather than showing courage, the defence lawyers suggested he is lying because he did not get witness protection and is covering for the real killers.

During his closing address, defence lawyer Dirk Derstine, who represented Shakiyl Shaw, told the jury they could not believe anything said by Poyser “a snake who violated The Palace of Justice.”

Poyser realized after the murder “he had to deliver others to save himself,” Derstine said.

Defence lawyer Boris Bytensky, in his final argument, reminded jurors that Poyser’s lawyer initially told police his client would point the finger at perpetrators known to carry guns in the past. During the trial, Poyser testified he did not know the twins to be involved with firearms.

Margaret Bojanowska, Ali-Nur’s defence lawyer, questioned Poyser’s ability to identify her client, given his level of impairment.

Supreme Court orders new trial for manslaughter in Cindy Gladue's death

Supreme Court orders new trial for manslaughter in Cindy Gladue's death OTTAWA — Ontario trucker Bradley Barton should be retried for manslaughter, but not murder, in the case of Cindy Gladue, who bled to death in the bathroom of his Edmonton motel room, the Supreme Court of Canada has ruled. In a 4-3 decision Friday, the high court said evidence about sexual history was mishandled at the original trial that ended in Barton's acquittal on a charge of first-degree murder. Barton acknowledged hiring Cindy Gladue for sex in 2011 and claimed the severe injury to her vaginal wall that caused her death was an accident that took place during rough but consensual activity.

But Tice said it made no sense for Poyser to falsely pick out his friends when there was no history of ill-will or bad-blood between them. He also pointed to video surveillance, phone records, and other evidence that he said confirmed or corroborated Poyser’s testimony.
