Calgary trial delayed for man charged in death of four-year-old daughter

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.

“The force of the waves knocked the one person off balance . . . Warren was operating the boat, he got up to attend to his friend and the boat capsized,” Blakney said. Both men were wearing life-jackets over their clothing.

RCMP arrived at 11:12 p.m. after campers at Blanket Creek Provincial Park, on the Columbia River’s east bank, heard cries from the water.

The friend, who is also from Calgary, made it to shore safely and was located at 6 a.m. the following morning. He was airlifted to hospital in non-life-threatening condition as a precaution.

Blakney said the darkness and weather conditions made for “a very dangerous situation.”

An extensive air, water and ground search was carried out starting Friday morning, but was called off Saturday at 2 p.m. due to poor weather conditions.

“How many of us wear life-jackets over our clothes? Most of us do and the assumption is you’ll be safe,” Blakney said. “Once you get in the water with your clothing on and try to swim . . . it’s incredibly difficult.

“These guys were pushing their luck and it was a terrible accident . . . (It is) something to consider the next time one goes boating.”
