Murder Trial On Hold

The Thunder Bay murder trial of 22 year old Sheldon Wabason is on hold for one year.  The trial was to have started in Superior Court today. His lawyer Delmar Doucette says it's because there aren't enough First Nations people represented on the local jury roll.  He calls it an important issue for everyone in the city. Wabason is charged with second degree murder in connection with the March 2011 death of 54 year old Robert Topping.
