McKay's sons to testify at Sinclair inquiry

  • Print

The boys who witnessed the torture and murder of Phoenix Sinclair in 2005 will be testifying today at the inquiry into her death.

The sons of Karl Wesley McKay and their mother will all be speaking at the inquiry remotely through a video link that only the commissioner of the inquiry will be able to see but everyone in the hearing room will be able to hear.

They are protected by a publication ban granted by Commissioner Ted Hughes after the witnesses complained they were harassed after testifying at the murder trial of McKay in 2008.

McKay and Phoenix’s mother, Samantha Kematch, were convicted of first-degree murder.

The boys are grown men now working and going to school and their colleagues don’t know about their connection to McKay, the inquiry has heard.
