Crown wraps up its case in Legebokoff trial break in the trial expected to last three weeks; to return Aug. 25

The Crown has wrapped up its case against accused serial killer Cody Legebokoff.

The Crown has wrapped up its case against accused serial killer, Cody Legebokoff, 24, who has been charged with four counts of first-degree murder in relation to the deaths of four women in the Prince George area.

The Crown called 93 witnesses in the trial that began on June 2 in Prince George, and was expected to last six to eight months.

Legebokoff is accused of killing 15-year-old Loren Leslie, a Fraser Lake native who was living in Vanderhoof at the time of her death, 23-year-old Natasha Montgomery and 35-year-olds Jill Stuchenko and Cynthia Maas.

All four women were reported missing between October 2009 and November 2010.

Legebokoff was arrested after he was pulled over by a RCMP officer after he noticed Legebokoff’s truck leaving a remote logging road near Vanderhoof.

Legebokoff had blood smeared on his face and legs and when questioned about it told the officer that he had been poaching deer.

B.C. Supreme Court Justice Glen Parrett has given jurors a three week break.

The Crown will have an opportunity to present more evidence in reply if defence lawyers call any witnesses.

The trial is set to resume Aug. 25.
