Raymond Stacey, accused of killing fellow 'chicken catcher', to be released on bail
Newfoundland's highest court has granted bail to Raymond Stacey, a man accused of killing a fellow worker enroute to a job at a chicken plant.
The Court of Appeal overturned a decision last month by Justice Raymond Halley in the Trial Division of the Supreme Court to deny Stacey bail.
Stacey, 24, is not out yet. His lawyer, Bob Buckingham, said that the matter will be back in the court of appeal on Tuesday when Stacey will learn the conditions of his bail, and that he will be released on Wednesday.
Stacey is charged with the second-degree murder of Clifford Comerford, 41, in Mount Pearl in January 2015.
They were co-workers, chicken catchers, for a company contracted to do work at the Country Ribbon facility near Paddy's Pond.
It's alleged that Stacey stabbed Comerford in a van that was picking them up in Mount Pearl to take them to work.
Stacey is slated to stand trial in November in Supreme Court in St. John's.
