R.E. was convicted for killing Eric Regimbald by stabbing
R.E. was convicted for killing E.R. by stabbing him in the back of the leg, and subsequently leaving the body on a Chinatown street before fleeting to British Columbia. Defence counsel Tonii Roulston argued for manslaughter, stating that the average person wouldn’t expect their victim to die if stabbed in the back of the leg. Justice Ged Hawco agreed that the accused’s conduct placed him in the mid-range of manslaughter.
