CAPAY WANTS HIS FIRST DEGREE MURDER CHARGE TO BE STAYED BECAUSE HE FEELS HIS CHARTER RIGHTS WERE VIOLATED
Testimony was given from May through October 2018 from numerous witnesses.
In the early hours of June 3, 2012, CAPAY allegedly took a pencil, went crawling across the floor in the dark stabbed the neck of Sherman Quisses, a 35-year-old inmate, in the dorm-style room of the Thunder Bay Correctional Centre. Capay used a pencil to puncture Quisses’s carotid artery. Quisses, a father of one from a northern Ontario reserve, died the next day. Capay was charged with first-degree murder, and moved to the Thunder Bay Jail. CAPAY would spend the next 4 1/2 years in segregation as he had violent thoughts to harm or kill others including inmates and staff.
JUSTICE FREGEAU RULES THAT THE CHARGE WILL BE STAYED.
FAMILY MEMBERS OF QUISSES ARE NOT IMPRESSED. ONE MEMBER SCREAMS “FUCK” AS HE LEAVES THE COURTROOM.
DUE TO A PUBLICATION BAN IMPOSED, NO FURTHER INFORMATION CAN BE PUBLISHED AS TO THE REASONS UNTIL FEBRUARY 27,2019.
CAPAY WALKS OUT OF COURT LAUGHING WITH FAMILY MEMBERS.
