Jury resumes deliberating mans guilt in Calgary mother of fours death

first_imgCALGARY – Jurors are continuing to deliberate the guilt of a man accused of raping and killing a Calgary mother of four.The jury was given instructions by Queen’s Bench Justice Charlene Anderson on Thursday evening and they deliberated until 9 p.m. without reaching a verdict.The Crown says Curtis Healy, who is 29, should be found guilty of first-degree murder in the death of 31-year-old Dawns Baptiste.Crown prosecutors say Healy became enraged when Baptiste told him to leave her alone and that he stomped her head, dragged her into a back yard, raped her and struck her in the head with a large rock.The Crown says it was first-degree murder because the murder, sexual assault and unlawful confinement happened together early on Feb. 11, 2015.The defence asked the jury to convict Healy of the lesser charge of second-degree murder because the sequence of events was unclear.last_img
