A British Columbia Supreme Courtroom decide says jurors might want to use their frequent sense in assessing the reliability of an alleged confession by a person accused of killing a 12-year-old woman.
In last directions to the jury, Justice Austin Cullen says an undercover police officer posing as against the law boss supplied monetary and social inducements to Garry Handlen however the man was by no means threatened.
Handlen has pleaded not responsible to the first-degree homicide of Monica Jack close to her dwelling in Merritt in 1978.
Her stays have been discovered 17 years later, close to the place Handlen instructed the supposed crime boss that he sexually assaulted and killed her.
The RCMP started a so-called Mr. Large sting in early 2014, falsely telling Handlen police had DNA linking him to Jack’s homicide and witnesses might place him on the crime scene however “issues may very well be performed to deal with it” if he instructed the reality.
The trial started in October and jurors are anticipated to begin deliberations on Monday.
