CALGARY – A man accused of killing a 31-year-old Calgary mother last February will stand trial two years after her murder happened.
Curtis Healy is charged with first-degree murder in the death of 31-year-old Dawns Echoes Baptiste, a mother of four whose body was found in a Whitehorn backyard on Feb. 12, 2015.
Healy is scheduled for a three-week jury trial in February 2017.
Police allege Healy and Baptiste met on Feb. 10 2015 and spent the evening together traveling to various parts of the city on the CTrain. They got off the train at Whitehorn Station just before midnight.
Police believe Baptiste was then attacked and dragged into a nearby yard, where she was sexually assaulted and later died of her injuries. Her body wasn’t discovered until about 36 hours later.
