Jury problems continue at murder trial

Jury problems continue at murder trial

After a juror was excused Tuesday morning at the second-degree murder trial for the woman accused of killing Justin Crowe, the judge called for a rarely used procedure in which potential jurors are pulled in from the street.

The issue was eventually addressed Monday and a jury selected, but on Tuesday morning, a further problem arose when a juror had to be excused.

Miller said the Crown intends to prove 27-year-old Crowe died during a party that ended up at his father’s house on the Piapot First Nation on Oct. 26 and 27, 2015.

“The Crown intends to prove that the accused acted in such a manner as to intentionally wound Mr. Crowe, thus causing his death,” Miller said.

Miller told the jury he intends to prove Pinacie-Littlechief “hastily resorted to an act of violence” without justification.
