Crown wraps up case in Millet murder trial
The Crown's case against a Millet mother accused of killing her two young sons wrapped up in a Wetaskiwin courtroom Thursday.
Allyson McConnell, 33, is charged with second-degree murder in the deaths on Feb.1, 2010, of her sons, 10-month-old Jayden and two-year-old Connor.
The couple were going through bitter divorce proceedings and a custody battle at the time.
"We have a certain detachment professionally, but every night I go home and I see my boy," said Crown attorney Gordon Hatch outside the courtroom. "And ... I can't imagine what Curtis felt and I don't want to even try. It's a terrible thing to have seen, witnessed, his children ..."
The case for the defence will begin on Monday. Alysson McConnell is expected to testify on her own behalf.
