And I thought I had problems…
VANCOUVER – A judge from Kelowna, B.C., has been chosen to hear the case of accused serial killer Robert Pickton.
Judge Geoffrey Barrow will begin hearing disclosure arguments in the case on May 25, however the trial is not expected to begin until next January.
Pickton lived on a farm in Port Coquitlam, just outside Vancouver. He has been charged with 15 counts of first-degree murder.
The victims are women listed as missing from Vancouver’s Downtown East Side.
The Crown says it has identified the DNA of nine other women on the farm and is examining the sample from another unidentified woman.
Prosecutors expect to add another seven charges before the trial begins. Pickton has been in custody for the past three years
