Parents Of Craig Kelloway Will Push For An Appeal Of the Verdict Handed His Killer
The parents of a former Glace Bay man say they’ll push for an appeal of the verdict that found their son’s killer guilty of manslaughter.
32 year-old Nicholas Rasberry was originally charged with second-degree murder in the death of Craig Kelloway in 2013.
However, yesterday a Calgary judge found Rasberry guilty of the lesser charge of manslaughter.
Harvey Kelloway says he and his wife Monica are heartbroken after a painful, two-year wait for justice for their son.
Kelloway adds they plan to contact the Calgary prosecutor involved in the case, as well as their MP Rodger Cuzner and the federal justice minister about having the verdict appealed.
The retired police officer goes on to say his son was stabbed 37 times with three different knives, while Rasberry was unwounded.
Kelloway leaves behind a three year-old son.
Meanwhile, the presiding judge in the case has ordered a psychiatric assessment for Rasberry who is not in custody and remains free on bail.
The judge hopes to impose a sentence by the end of December.
