Crown Expected To Wrap Up Case In Sandfly Trial

Wednesday, October 22, 2008 at 14:13



A Battleford courtroom heard more details yesterday about the night a young Big Island Lake First Nation man died.


22-year-old Edwin Dufraine died from stab wounds suffered during a house party in November, 2006.


22-year-old Lynette Sandfly is charged in connection with his death.


Defence lawyer George Combe says several witnesses provided some key testimony on Tuesday — stating Dufraine sometimes became aggressive when drinking.


Combe argues his client was acting in self-defence.


Several witnesses testified yesterday that they heard noises at the house in question.


They rushed upstairs to find Sandfly holding a knife.


Dufraine was found lying in the snow.


The Crown is expected to wrap up its case today.
