Glen Race Case - Donna Race/Doug Race
We started this segment with a clip from Donna Race, speaking at a press conference in Halifax yesterday. She is talking about her son Glen, who suffers from paranoid schizophrenia.
In January of 2009, Glen Race was convicted of murdering a man in the United States. He was sentenced to life in prison. He has since been extradited to Canada ... and now faces two more murder charges. Until yesterday, Glen Race's family had declined to talk publicly about their son's case.
At the press conference yesterday, they argued that Glen Race should not be found criminally responsible for his actions because of his paranoid schizophrenia. This morning, Glen Race's mother Donna and his brother Doug have agreed to sit down with us for their first interview on the subject. They were in Halifax.
