A man linked to the RCMPís investigation into Travis Vader lashed out a judge during a brief court appearance Friday.
Thomas James Berube was appearing in provincial court so that his defence lawyer, Peter Royal, could withdraw a mistrial application related to forgery charges. While Royal was addressing the court, Berube swore loudly and accused the judge of corruption. When he refused to quiet down, he was led out of the courtroom by a sheriff back to the holding cells.
Following the outburst, court heard Berube has run through a number of lawyers while his case has moved through the system, and that he has been in custody for the past two years.
Berube also appeared in a different courtroom earlier in the day on a slew of charges, including numerous counts of public mischief, possession of stolen property, break and enter, possession of property obtained by crime and one count of making explosives. He also faces a number of obstruction and evading police charges. He is set to appear in court Monday to deal with that matter, while the forgery-related charges are to be heard in mid-March.Beginning in March 2013, Berube spent 495 days in protective segregation at the Edmonton Remand Centre due to his involvement in the investigation of Vader in connection to the disappearances and presumed deaths of St. Albert seniors Lyle and Marie McCann in July 2010.
After being found guilty of two counts of manslaughter, Vader was sentenced to life in prison in January.
Berubeís segregation came to light when he was sentenced to a two-year term for theft in 2014. However, heíd already served his sentence thanks to pre-trial custody credit received for his time in the Remand.
Vader named Berube in a lawsuit filed in February 2014 related to the investigation, along with several RCMP officers and Edmontons chief Crown email@example.com
