Preliminary inquiry continues for Steven Laffin, accused of murdering Halifax sex worker

HALIFAX – A preliminary inquiry continues today for a 37-year-old man charged with second-degree murder in the disappearance of a Halifax woman.

Twenty-nine-year old Nadine Taylor went missing after she left her apartment to make a phone call.

Steven Elliot Laffin became a suspect about three weeks later after the Dartmouth man was arrested on charges of attacking another sex worker in Halifax.

Police charged Laffin with her murder in October 2010, but the woman’s body has never been found.

Laffin has remained in a Halifax jail since then.

Nine days have been booked for the preliminary inquiry.

Five people – four civilians and one police officer – testified Monday.
