MENSON has a lengthy criminal record as was on probation at the time of the alleged murder. He’s also facing a breach of probation charge.

A murder charge in Canada means an automatic detention order is issued so MENSON doesn’t have an entitlement to a bail hearing. The next step will be to submit a bail review in front of a Superior Court of Justice.
MENSON has chosen George Joseph as his lawyer.
His next court appearance will be by video on April 4,2019
