Trial of alleged serial killer expected to start today in Prince George

A man from northern B.C. accused of multiple murders is expected to stand trial today in Prince George.

23-year-old Cody Legebokoff is charged with four counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of four women.

The women disappeared from the Prince George area between the fall of 2009 and the fall of 2010.

Legebokoff was arrested in November 2010 after an RCMP officer stopped a vehicle that pulled onto a highway from an unused logging road.

When the tracks were retraced, officers found the body of 15-year-old Loren Leslie.

Police later linked the case to the deaths of three other women.
