Kelloway Murder Trial Continues
The trial for the man accused of fatally stabbing a Glace Bay native is due to continue today in Calgary.
32 year-old Nicholas Raspberry is charged with second degree murder in the death of 31 year-old Craig Kelloway in May of 2013.
Yesterday, the court heard from two police officers who were among the first at the bloody crime scene.
Constables Cody Bell and Francis Zinn arrived at Raspberry’s home after he called 911 to say he stabbed Kelloway.
The officers testified that Raspberry was clearly distraught, but co-operative, as he was taken into custody.
They also testified that Raspberry told them he was defending himself after Kelloway tried to sexually assault him.
The officers also say Raspberry said he tried to resuscitate Kelloway after stabbing him.
A 30-minute forensic video recorded by police was also played to the courtroom showing blood stains in the kitchen and living room as well as a blood-stained knife.
A blood-stain pattern analyst was called as the final witness of the day yesterday and her testimony is expected to continue when the trial resumes today.
