Legebokoff Appeal to be Heard Today

Wednesday, May 25, 2016 @ 5:59 AM

Vancouver, B.C. – The BC Court of Appeal will hear  arguments today  from  legal Counsel for convicted  killer Cody Alan Legebokoff in an effort to have his multiple murder convictions  overturned.

The appeal is based on two  issues which Legebokoff’s lawyers  say  represent a miscarriage of justice.   One deals with the  ruling on the  change of venue  application, the other claims a  violation of Legebokoff’s right to be represented by  Counsel of his choice throughout the  proceedings.

Cody Alan Legebokoff  was convicted of four  counts of murder in the deaths of Loren Leslie, Jill Stuchenko,  Natasha Lyn Montgomery  and Cynthia Maas.

The appeal is to be heard by  a panel of three  Justices;  Justice Richard Goepel, Justice S. David Frankel, and Justice Peter Willcock.
