Gatineau man has first-degree murder conviction overturned for second time

  Gatineau man has first-degree murder conviction overturned for second time A Gatineau man has had his first-degree murder conviction quashed for a second time, which means he could face a third trial in the execution of a local drug dealer who was shot in the heart. Fadi Saleh 41, was sentenced to life in prison after being found guilty by an Ottawa jury in November 2015. In a ruling this week, however, the Court of Appeal for Ontario again overturned that conviction. The appeal court identified four serious errors during the trial judge’s charge to the jury, which together gave rise to “a substantial wrong or miscarriage of justice.

  Player grades: With a little help from above, Mike Smith steals a point for punchless Oilers Oilers 0, Jets 1 (SO) I’m not sure if the ice was bad at Bell MTS Place, or maybe they forgot to freeze the pucks. Whatever the issue, both the Edmonton Oilers and Winnipeg Jets struggled to hit a friendly stick with a pass or the opposition net with a shot. The two teams ground their way through a frenetically-paced 65 minutes of hockey without a goal to show for it. The scrambly affair was ultimately decided in the shootout when the Jets were finally able to solve Mike Smith, while the Oil never did figure out Connor Hellebuyck. The Oilers held the edge on the shot clock at 28-23 including 26-13 at 5v5, but the Jets had a 11-8 edge in Grade A scoring chances.

A jury has found Abdulahi Sharif guilty of the attempted murder of an Edmonton police officer and four pedestrians in a series of attacks two years ago. The jury also decided Sharif intended to kill four pedestrians who were hit by a rented U-Haul van he drove through downtown Edmonton hours

A man who struck a police officer with a car before stabbing him multiple times outside an Edmonton football game has been found guilty of Jurors have also convicted Abdulahi Hasan Sharif of attempting to murder four pedestrians he hit with a van during a police chase in the city's downtown.

The three-week trial heard from about 40 Crown witnesses. Sharif, who was not represented by a lawyer, declined to call any witnesses and did not testify in his own defence.

During the trial, Const. Mike Chernyk testified that he was on traffic duty outside an Edmonton Eskimos football game when he was struck by a car. He next remembered a man on top of him, stabbing him in the head with a knife.

A woman and her boyfriend who were walking their dogs near the stadium said they heard a car rev its engine before it rammed into a barricade and the police officer.

It's alleged that after attacking the officer, Sharif struck and injured four pedestrians as he drove a speeding U-Haul van through Edmonton's downtown.

The four told court about their memories of being hit and how they coped with broken bones, anxiety and depression.

Hurricanes most linked team to any trade for Jesse Puljujarvi

  Hurricanes most linked team to any trade for Jesse Puljujarvi Edmonton may or may not want to keep the Finnish forward, but one team would be very interested in bringing him on.The Athletic’s Allan Mitchell tries to put Puljujarvi’s production into context rather than let the hype train run wild. He writes that there is some question as to the quality of a few of Puljujarvi’s six goals on the year and, more importantly, adds that his point-per-game pace in the Liiga is only equivalent to approximately 0.43 points per game in the NHL.

Abdulahi Hasan Sharif stabbed officer and struck four pedestrians while trying flee to September 2017 incident, authorities say. Police said they found a flag of the Islamic State militant group in the truck driven by Sharif, but no charges of terrorism were filed.

The jury also heard from an undercover police officer who testified that Sharif detailed the attack in a holding cell the next morning.

"Mr. Sharif advised that he did something really bad ... that last night was like a dream," said the Mountie.

He said Sharif went on to detail the attack on Chernyk and how, as Sharif fled from police in the van, he hit several pedestrians.

The Crown argued during its closing statement Wednesday that Sharif went to extraordinary lengths to cause as much chaos and destruction as possible.

A lawyer appointed by the court to help Sharif urged jurors to consider whether he deliberately hit the pedestrians.

Judge Paul Belzil had instructed the jury that attempted murder charges required the Crown to prove intent.
