Murder convictions stand for Calgary men who swarmed and killed teen

Murder convictions stand for Calgary men who swarmed and killed teen Two men who helped kill a Calgary teen in a group swarming attack will not get new trials, but a dissenting opinion from an Alberta Court of Appeal judge means they can take their case to the Supreme Court of Canada. Franz Cabrera and Assmar Shlah were found guilty of second-degree murder in 2016 and appealed their convictions. Lukas Strasser-Hird was attacked outside a Calgary nightclub in 2013 after he told a group of men including the killers there was "no need to be racist." He was attacked out front of the nightclub before bouncers took him inside and then out the back door where an angry mob was waiting in the alley.

OTTAWA — The Supreme Court of Canada says 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.

In a 4-3 decision today, the high court says evidence about sexual history was mishandled at the original trial that led to 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 during rough but consensual activity.

No new trial for Travis Vader, appeal court rules

No new trial for Travis Vader, appeal court rules Convicted killer Travis Vader's bid for a new trial has been rejected by the Alberta Court of Appeal. "We see no prejudice having befallen the appellant as a consequence of the trial judge's analysis, and no benefit in a retrial to test again whether the appellant should have been convicted of manslaughter," the appeal court said in a judgment released Friday. In January 2017, Vader was sentenced to life in prison for manslaughter in the deaths of St. Albert couple Lyle and Marie McCann.

The Crown argued that Barton intentionally wounded Gladue and was guilty of first-degree murder or, at the very least, manslaughter, because the 36-year-old Metis woman did not consent to the activity.

Barton was found not guilty by a jury that repeatedly heard references to Gladue as a "prostitute" and a "native," but the Alberta Court of Appeal set aside the acquittal and ordered a new trial for first-degree murder.

A majority of the Supreme Court says Barton's new trial should be restricted to the offence of manslaughter, as the procedural errors at the original trial did not taint the jury's finding on the question of murder.
