PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. – Testimony continues today in the case of a 23-year-old Fort St. James, B.C. man charged with murdering four women
in the province’s north.
Cody Legebokoff is charged in the deaths of two 35-yar-old women — Jill Stuchenko and Cynthia Maas — plus 23-year-old Natasha Montgomery and 15-year-old Loren Leslie.
Legebokoff has pleaded not guilty to four counts of first-degree murder.
The Crown spent part of yesterday outlining gruesome details of the case and heard from witnesses like the parents of Montgomery.
Mother Louanne Montgomery said her daughter was a loving mother of two kids but had troubles with cocaine.
The Crown said Natasha Montgomery was involved in the sex trade, but her mother says she was unaware of that fact.
Louanne Montgomery said her daughter’s children now live in the community of Quensel, splitting their time between her and their father.
The trial is expected to last six to eight months and hear from more than 100 witnesses.
