Jury selected for Cold Case Unit’s first court case

| 06/05/2014

(CNS): A jury of ten women and two men were impanelled on Monday morning in preparation for the trial of Chad Anglin, one of two men accused of murdering Frederick Bise (40), a Swiss banker whose beaten body was found in the boot of his own a burnt out car outside his Mount Pleasant home in February 2008. Anglin and a second man, whose trial will be later this year and whose name cannot be published during this trial for legal reasons, were charged with the crime last October, more than five and a half years after the murder. This is the first case to reach the courtroom as a result of charges brought by officers working in the RCIPS Cold Case Unit, created in 2010.

This first cold case trial is expected to be opened by the crown on Tuesday morning following pre-trial arguments Monday. The prosecution is being led by visiting QC, Simon Russell Flint, and is being heard before presiding judge, Justice Alex Henderson.
