Excerpt:

Quote
Ron Pich?, the defence lawyer for the man charged in the murder of Carol King, says his client has denied involvement in the killing from the time it happened and will plead not guilty. Alberta man accused of killing Carol King will plead not guilty
 
After eight days of arguments over the admissibility of certain statements presented by the Crown, Caissie, in front of three supporters learned his fate on Friday.

He will head to trial for both first-degree murder in connection to his ex-girlfriend?s death and offering an indignity to human remains.

As the judge delivered his decision, Caissie looked up in the prisoners? box and started to cry.

?There was a live issue that if we had been successful, could have marked the end of the this proceeding,? Caissie?s lawyer Ron Piche said.

?Unfortunately the judge didn?t see it our way, it doesn?t mean the arguments at an end ? it?s the same argument that will advance at trial.?

Caissie, who will remain in custody, whispered ?I?m so sorry? to his family and friends before being led away.

He has been locked up since July 19, 2016 after being arrested without incident by police.

Excerpts:

Quote
It will be another year before a murder trial with connections to this province will begin in Saskatchewan.


It wasn’t until July 2016 when her former boyfriend, Joseph (David) Caissie, then 53, was arrested and charged with first-degree murder and offering an indignity to human remains.

Matthew Miazga is the senior Crown prosecutor with the Saskatchewan Ministry of Justice. He’s been tasked with prosecuting Caissie.

Caissie’s trial, before a jury in the Court of Queen’s Bench in Saskatoon, won’t begin until March 4, 2019, but Miazga said there will be activity taking place before then.

This Friday a case management hearing will be held with the trial judge, one of several planning sessions that will occur over the next year.

In June the court will start hearing a series of voir dires on the admissibility of evidence that will continue into September and October.

The trial may seem like a long way off, but Miazga said that doesn’t impact the argument.

“I’ve done cases where the offence has been further back than this one. The case is there, the evidence is there. So, it’s not really going to change that much.”

Miazga’s case will involve a large number of witnesses — there are 36 on his initial list — and he said there are some complicating factors.

Because it is a jury trial, he declined to comment more on what his prosecution will involve.

He did say the majority of his witnesses will be professionals, including Royal Canadian Mounted Police officers involved in the investigation.

Depending on Caissie’s willingness to make factual admissions on certain points — like when Ms. King went missing and the circumstances of her disappearance — Miazga said it’s unlikely he’ll call any members of Ms. King’s family.

Caissie was committed to stand trial in May 2017 and the original intent had been for the trial to take place this year.

But circumstances outside the court’s control prevented that after Caissie’s first lawyer withdrew from the case.

His second lawyer was only on the case for about three months before withdrawing due to a conflict of interest.

His current lawyer wasn’t a party to when the trial dates had been set, which resulted in the change in dates.

Miazga said that is why the court is using dates that are available to get some of the voir dires done.

Once it does start the trial is scheduled to run for six weeks.

Cassie has been in custody since his arrest and will remain so until the trial. An earlier application for bail was denied and Miazga feels it is unlikely he will apply again.

If convicted, he’s facing a mandatory sentence of life in prison.

Just reading back...(reply #767)...and Caisses  lawyer says he cooperated with Police?  Yes, okay...
Why did it take five years to arrest him then?
Sorry to hear it’s going to take another year...but changing lawyers does tend to drag things out...What a shame.

In my opinion he is already convicted by himself (his actions). When he was led away he was crying and apologizing to his family. If he was innocent as he had claimed, there would be no need to apologize, right? I don't know but right there it seems he said "I'm sorry for what I did to Carol and all of you". JMHO

Yes for awhile it really appeared the case was not moving forward but quietly the police were working and got their ducks in a row. Reminds me not to be so critical of police when there is nothing new being reported for some time.

EWO, I am so sorry to hear of your stroke. :( I hope all is well with you now. Good to see you back.
