Accused enter pleas in McIvor murder case 0
The two youths accused in the death of Roberta McIvor last July on Sandy Bay Ojibway First Nation appeared in Court of Queen's Bench to enter their pleas, Tuesday.
Crown attorneys Carli Owens and Joyce Dalmyn are seeking to charge the two youths with theft of a motor vehicle and manslaughter, but will not be seeking an adult sentence. Both girls, aged 15 and 17 at the time of the incident, pleaded guilty to both manslaughter and theft of a motor vehicle.
While the Crown is aiming for the maximum youth sentence of three years, the defence lawyers Cam Pauls and Greg Brodsky are looking for the minimum youth sentence.
The case will be back in court on July 11 to prepare to set a date.
