Lawyer's no-show stalls Labossière case

  • Print

A man who claims he was wrongfully convicted of killing his elderly parents and brother will have to wait a while longer to try and prove his case.

Jérôme Labossière was expected to appear before the Manitoba Court of Appeal Thursday to seek a new trial. But the high-profile hearing was abruptly adjourned due to the absence of one of the lawyers. It likely won't be heard now until early 2014.

Labossière was found guilty last year of three counts of first-degree murder despite no evidence he participated in the gruesome November 2005 attacks in St. Leon.
