The judge in the first degree murder trial of Robert Badgerow will resume his charge to the jury on Monday.
CBC reports that Justice Patrick Flynn began his instructions Thursday by telling the 12 men and women that they have one goal: determine whether Badgerow was responsible for the death of Diane Werendowicz in June 1981.
The 23-year old woman’s body was found in a ravine in Stoney Creek with the crown alleging Badgerow raped and then murdered her.
This is record 4th trial for Badgerow on the same charged.
After being convicted in his first trial, he won an appeal. The two following trials ended in hung juries.
Court does not sit on Friday’s so the remainder of the judge’s charge will be completed on Monday.
