WINNIPEG - Free Press court reporter Mike McIntyre will continue reporting live from the trial of Candace Derksen's accused killer on Monday.

The court heard today from:

  • Frank Wayne Alsip, owner of the Elmwood brickyard where 13-year-old Derksen's body was found,
  • Derek Blackman-Shaw, a retired police officer who was among the first to respond to Alsip's 911 call about the discovery,
  • Keith Cahoon, a retired police officer who was the acting street supervisory that day,
  • James Anis, a current member of Winnipeg Police Service who works in identification unit. He was not involved in the initial investigation but helped the Crown organize photo exhibits.

The jury was then told they didn't have to return until 2 p.m. Wednesday, as lawyers and the judge deal with an issue that has arisen.

Mark Edward Grant, 47, has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in Derksen's 1984 death.

Grant wasn't arrested until 2007 after DNA found at the crime scene was linked to him through advanced testing techniques.

Derksen was allegedly grabbed off the street on Nov. 30, 1984, bound with rope and left to freeze to death inside a shed. Her body was found on Jan. 17, 1985, following an exhaustive search that included hundreds of volunteers.
