Possible Fourth Trial in Ellard case
Just a quick note about the Ellard hearing at the SCC yesterday.
Almost 12 years after the drowning death of Reena Virk, accused Kelly Ellard’s fate for her alleged role in the death is still uncertain. 3 trials, 2 appeals, and 1 hung jury later, this sordid saga could be sent back for yet another trial.
The Vancouver Sun provides a good summary here.
