Murder charge stayed in stabbing death
A young man who was accused of second-degree murder in the stabbing death of his brother is no longer before the courts, after Crown prosecutors decide to stay the charges.
Almost from the outset it was argued, by Shayman's lawyer, that the teen was acting in self-defence.
The charge, however, was stayed, meaning the case will not be prosecuted.
The Crown has one year to reactivate the charge if new information arises.
