Saskatchewan’s highest court has upheld the murder conviction of a Saskatchewan Mountie-killer.
Curtis Dagenais was asking for a new trial.
His lawyer argued the issue or provocation was not put before the jury in his 2009 trial.
The Court of Appeal dismissed the argument — saying it had no merit. In a rare move, it brought down its decision mere moments after hearing arguments.
Dagenais watched the proceedings through a closed circuit TV link from the Prince Albert Penitentiary, where he is serving a life sentence.
In 2006, he shot and killed RCMP constables Marc Bourdages and Robin Cameron near Spiritwood.
His father, Art, was at the courthouse today. He stormed out, saying his son is innocent and the fight to prove it is not over.
