Trial Of Suspected Nashacappo Killer Enters Day 2

Tuesday, January 06, 2009 at 13:06



Testimony continues today at a first degree murder trial in Saskatoon.


This morning, the Crown finished with its third and fourth witnesses in its case against 59-year-old Brian Casement.


Casement is charged with the murder of 21-year-old Victoria Nashacappo, who was last seen alive on September 25th, 2002 while visiting her sisters.


Her remains were found almost four years later in the basement of a demolished house south of Saskatoon.


The Crown says its evidence will show that Casement picked up Nashacappo for sex, and that after she changed her mind, he raped and killed her.


Nashacappo’s former boyfriend testified today that he saw her the morning the day she went missing, and later provided DNA to police so he wouldn’t be a suspect.


The Crown will call 15 witnesses in all.


Crown prosecutor Melodi Kujawa says the court will watch the videotape of Casement saying he killed Nashacappo.


The trial is expected to last three weeks.
