Manitoba's highest court has ordered a new trial in the case of a man convicted of killing his gay lover, ruling jurors were not adequately cautioned about the phenomenon of false confessions. Michael Pearce was found guilty of manslaughter in the 2007 bludgeoning death of 36-year-old Stuart Mark and sentenced in 2012 to seven years in prison.
An emotional Cassandra Knott began wailing and hugged defence lawyer Gerri Wiebe after learning she was being acquitted of second-degree murder. Her tragic case thrust the historic abuse she suffered at the victim's hands into the spotlight and became a focal point in her defence. Watch Court of Queen's Bench Associate Chief Justice Shane Perlmutter deliver the verdict.
Legal mistakes resulted in a compromised trial and the wrongful conviction of a man accused of brutally killing his friend and occasional lover, his defence lawyer told Manitoba's Court of Appeal Monday.
The psychologist who diagnosed Cassandra Knott as having severe post-traumatic stress disorder due to ugly domestic abuse inflicted by her husband says he can't be absolutely sure it wasn't drunken anger -- not fear -- that led Knott to stab in the chest the man she still claims to love.
