Guy Turcotte child murder case may go to Supreme Court
Guy Turcotte's lawyer wants the Supreme Court of Canada to consider overturning a Quebec Court of Appeal ruling ordering a new trial after Turcotte was found not criminally responsible for killing his two children in 2009.
Defence lawyer Pierre Poupart announced Friday he would make the request to the country's top court.
Crown prosecutor René Verret was expecting to set a new trial date at Turcotte's Friday appearance at the courthouse in St-Jerome.
The Quebec Court of Appeal ordered a new trial in November after overturning the decision that Turcotte was not criminally responsible due to a mental disorder in the stabbing deaths of his children.
