PORT COQUITLAM, B.C. — Child killer Allan Schoenborn agrees he should remain in psychiatric custody.

During a hearing in Port Coquitlam, B.C., today, Schoenborn instead asked to be transferred to a similar facility in Selkirk, Man.

Schoenborn says his mother and other family members live in Manitoba and he has no support in B.C. to help him reintegrate into the community.

The B.C. Review Board panel reserved its decision until later Friday or Monday on whether to agree to the transfer.

Schoenborn was found not criminally responsible by reason of mental disorder of the 2008 murders of his children 10-year-old Kaitlynne, eight-year-old Max and five-year-old Cordon.

He told his trial he killed them to protect them from an imagined threat of sexual abuse.
