TWO new judges have been appointed this week, including one who recently successfully defended Mark Stobbe in his high-profile murder case.
Defence counsel Tim Killeen and Crown attorney Cynthia Devine were appointed provincial court judges by Attorney General Andrew Swan.
"Cynthia Devine and Tim Killeen each bring a wealth of experience and a commitment to community that will serve the public and the provincial court well," Swan said in a statement.
"I welcome them to this next phase of their legal careers."
The appointments are effective immediately and a swearing-in ceremony will be scheduled as soon as possible.
Killeen recently represented Stobbe, who was found not guilty of murdering his wife Bev Rowbotham in March.
When Stobbe was charged in October 2000, he was working in a government department advising former premier Gary Doer. Stobbe had earlier been working in a similar role for the NDP government in Saskatchewan.
According to a government spokeswoman, Devine is not related to either Doer's wife Ginny nor former provincial court Judge Susan Devine.
