There has been a delay in the sentencing hearing for the teenage boy who killed four people and wounded seven others in La Loche in January of 2016 with two of the deaths occurring at the community’s school.
The reason for the delay is two defence experts submitted a letter saying the shooter has fetal alcohol syndrome.
Crown prosecutor Lloyd Stang addressed court Friday in Meadow Lake saying he would like an opportunity to cross examine the two experts before he makes his closing arguments. The judge agreed to that request with the cross-examinations happening September 1. It is believed final arguments may be made on that day.
