Not-guilty plea in stabbing death

  • Print

A Winnipeg man has pleaded not guilty in connection with the grisly killing of Adam Nattaway, who died after lurching into a West End pizza shop while bleeding from a severe stab wound.

Edmund Wescoupe, 50, began his manslaughter trial in provincial court Monday.

Wescoupe was one of several people police found inside a blood-spattered Sherbrook Street apartment on Oct. 26, 2012, Const. Ryan Naismith testified.

The apartment block is close to the Pizza Shack restaurant on Sargent Avenue where Nattaway, 39, sought assistance.

There was evidence the people in the suite had been drinking, and a knife with a bloody blade was also seized from there, court heard.

"Nobody admitted to knowing anything that went on," Naismith told Judge Brian Corrin.

Forensic identification officer Const. Jerome Taylor testified a blood trail was found, leading down the rear fire escape from the apartments towards the pizza restaurant.

The trial continues today.
