Trial begins in Calgary for grandfather accused of killing 5-year-old The trial for a grandfather accused of killing his five-year-old grandson begins in Calgary Monday morning. Allan Perdomo Lopez, 59, is charged with manslaughter in the July 2015 death of Emilio Perdomo.

Calgary mother Gillian Webster contacted police after her four-and-a-half-year-old son was reportedly injured by razor blades that were on a slide at a northeast playground on Monday at around 10:30 a.m.

Webster said the caregiver from her dayhome found the blades after noticing the boy had blood on his pants after he went down the slide at the playground off 60 Avenue and Centre Street.

"[My son] James had gone down the slide and then [the caregiver] had noticed blood and quickly realized that he was cut on his hand and then, upon further investigation, they discovered that there were razor blades stuck near the top of the slide, I believe. Then he also had a cut on his butt," Webster said.

Slow down! Speeding fines on Calgary pathways have jumped from $50 to $400

Slow down! Speeding fines on Calgary pathways have jumped from $50 to $400 Calgary's annual pathway patrol is underway, and bylaw officers want speeders to know fines have gone up — way up. If you're going more than 10 km/h over the posted speed limit, the fine is now $400, up from $50. The bylaw was updated in March of this year. "Fines have increased substantially.… So if it's posted at 20 and you're caught doing 30, 35, 40, a summons under the parks and pathways bylaw is now $400," said Sgt. Fausto Ricioppo, who is with the city's community standards division.

"When we were informed, we were very shocked that something like this could have happened at a park that we go to quite frequently... It was a pretty big shock and quite devastating to think that someone could do this."

Webster said she also contacted Health Link and was grateful that her son had all of his shots.

"[My son] was a little shaken up. I think he knew it was someone bad, a bad guy who had put the razor blades on the slide," Webster said.

Police confirmed to Global News that the family reported the incident to them.

Officials said the boy’s caregiver removed the razor blades before police arrived at the scene.

The mother posted a picture on Facebook expressing her anger after the incident, showing her son's bloody sweatpants after he was allegedly injured by the blades.

"This is the last thing you'd expect to have happen at a children's park where they should be safe to play," Webster said.

"It's just horrible that maybe we have to start inspecting playground equipment more closely. I sincerely hope this never happens to anybody else. It's a pretty sickening feeling."

Police said there was no CCTV footage in the area so they couldn’t track down who may have put the razor blades on the slide.

Officers cautioned the public to be aware of this incident and said to safely discard anything like what injured the young boy.

Calgary trial delayed for man charged in death of four-year-old daughter.
CALGARY — A trial that was to begin Monday for a man accused in the death of his four-year-old daughter has been delayed. Oluwatosin Oluwafemi, 42, is charged with second-degree murder and was in a Calgary courtroom when a judge granted a defence lawyer's request for an adjournment due to a colleague's medical emergency. "Obviously before bringing the application we canvassed all other alternatives on how we might be able to proceed and just don't see it's viable in the circumstances," explained defence lawyer Michael Bates. Court of Queen's Bench Justice Paul Jeffrey, who met with both the Crown and the defence, said an alternative for a fair trial could not be found.
