The man accused of killing an Ajax mother and two of her children last March was back in court Monday.

Cory Fenn, the man accused of three counts of second-degree murder in the deaths of 39-year-old Krassimira Pejcinovski, 15-year-old Roy Pejcinovski, and 13-year-old Venallia Pejcinovski was back in court Monday for the start of his preliminary hearing.

Fenn, who has grown out his hair and beard, sat with his head down, not looking into the gallery where family and friends of the Pejcinovskis sat. He was visibly upset during some of the Crown’s opening remarks where he shook his head.

Krassimira and her son Roy, a lauded minor league hockey goalie, were found dead in their home on March 14, 2018. Venallia died hours later in hospital.

Police say Fenn had a relationship with Krassimira Pejcinovski. He was arrested at a home in Oshawa the day of the murders following a brief manhunt.
