Saskatchewan Appeal Court upholds conviction of man in wife's murder

Saskatchewan Appeal Court upholds conviction of man in wife's murder REGINA — Saskatchewan's highest court has rejected an appeal from a man convicted of killing his wife. David Woods of Saskatoon went to the Appeal Court after jurors convicted him in 2014 of first-degree murder in the death of Dorothy Woods. She disappeared in November 2011 and her body was discovered nearly two months later in a culvert near Blackstrap Lake, a 40-minute drive south of Saskatoon. 

The inquest was told that Roche, who had two sons aged 12 and eight, was running to raise money for Parkinson’s disease after her father, Alan, was diagnosed with the condition. Her leg and foot had swollen and her foot was cold to touch, the court was told . She returned to the hospital on 12 October.

OTTAWA — Former Afghanistan hostage Joshua Boyle, accused of assaulting now-estranged spouse Caitlan Coleman, portrayed her today as a mentally unstable person prone to fits and violence.

Boyle testified during his assault trial in Ontario court that Coleman had a tempestuous personality and was mercurial at the best of times.

Boyle, 36, has pleaded not guilty to offences against Coleman, including assault, sexual assault and unlawful confinement, as well as a charge of misleading Ottawa police in the hours before he was arrested.

The offences are alleged to have occurred in late 2017, after the couple returned to Canada following five years as captives of Taliban-linked extremists who seized them during a backpacking trip to Asia.

Boyle says that during their tumultuous courtship Coleman would slap and hit him and even claw at his eyes.

He claims Coleman once came at him with a knife because he brought the wrong kind of mayonnaise home from the grocery store.

In letter to Coleman's parents, Boyle says she twice made him a hostage.
In a letter sent to his in-laws while he was in jail after his arrest, Joshua Boyle blamed his wife, Caitlan Coleman, for once again landing him in captivity — only months after they were freed from a five-year hostage ordeal in Afghanistan. Following his arrest on a raft of assault and sexual assault charges, Boyle was held in custody for more than five months.
