Kaila Tran

Kaila Tran, 26, was killed, in broad daylight, in a parking lot near her apartment building in the St. Vital neighbourhood on June 20, 2012.

As police investigated the scene of the killing, Moslenko was caught on a CBC News camera walking around the area and talking on a cellphone.

He was arrested a few days later.

Moslenko has been out on bail since August 2012, under what a judge described as "very, very strict" conditions.
