Why did Bruce McArthur choose to be guilty as the first eight-month charges were not explained Tuesday morning, although the police hinted that the answers still come.
McArthur killed eight people at the Toronto court that was not absolutely astonishing. The police said earlier that it was "a significant development". But culpability can be rare in major trials, during the course of development, the defense can determine the force in the Crown, according to B.C. criminal lawyer Marilyn Sandford.
"The first question is always: can not they prove the case?" Sandford was part of the legal team that represents Robert Pickton, a serial killer, in a month with CBC News.
"You want to be able to give it [your client] You must be able to say the strengths and weaknesses of the case before discussing this opinion before negotiating an opposition agreement, in order to make informed decisions. "
McArthur's trial will be three months to four months and the trial date will be set for January 6, 2020, and his team has been looking for weaknesses for nearly a year.
Outside of the court, Det. David Dickinson, one of the principal investigators in this case, stated that McArthur was considered to be guilty later. Insp. Hank Idsinga, the head of research, also proposes further information on McArthur's motivation.
"We will see next week's next trial," said CBC News.
Instead, the Supreme Court of Ontario, John McMahon opened the procedure for McArthur's inquiry, knowing that they were guilty, and was not guilty of assuming that things were not assumed.
McArthur understood, McMahon asked him to judge his trial.
McArthur replied: "Yes."
McMahon also asked that his landscapes be the first landscaper under pressure from family, friends, lawyers or police. McArthur did not say.
McMahon said he was guilty of having to penalize McArthur's life in prison. Whether or not his essence goes on word or at the same time It will be decided next week.
"So, unless you understand that you are at least 91, before you have the right to participate," said McMahon. "Do you understand, do you understand, sir?"
"Yes, your honor," McArthur said.
McArthur spent 11 years on his arrest and spent 11 days and, a year earlier, the police used the "serial killer" tag. He is sentenced to eight convicts.
His hand was taken to court, his face cut and wearing a blue sweater, he appeared separately from each other and underwear and jeans.
He was an image of a smiling and unruly man, especially in the media that he watched over the photos.
"This man is much older, he has lost a lot of weight," said Karen Fraser, McArthur was hired as a landscaper, and his assets were exploited by the victims.
"I knew who was always energetic, enthusiastic, a man who was eager for the next thing, and that was only a man who broke himself.
The whole court was full, especially with journalists, police and friends and relatives of the victims. The latter showed a slight emotion, as insulted as McArthur's crimes, and judges were judged.
McArthur was hunched, putting his hands on the side of the wooden banner, staring at his eyes, admiring anyone, no one, not the judge, or the secretary of the court, who read aloud each murderer, naming each murder victim: Andrew Kinsman, 49, Selim Esen, 44, Skandaraj Navaratnam, 40, Abdulbasir Faizi, 44, Kirushna Kumar Kanagaratnam, 37, Dean Lisowick, 47, Soroush Mahmudi, 50, and Majeed Kayhan, 58.
Eight victims, seven were linked to the LGBT community in Toronto.
When the secretary finished his reading, McArthur was asked to be a beggar after each count.
"Pity", he repeated eight times.
Several officials at the Toronto Police service sat down at the front of the court in front of McArthur's back guard. Dickinson and Idsing have become the officers who have attracted international attention.
"He felt a little emotion, a bit surreal," Idsing said. "Absolutely it's closed. It's not happiness, it's not something to celebrate. That's why it's good."
We still do not know how McArthur killed the victims. But when the judge heard it on Tuesday, in a brief version of a statement of events, they thought they were planning on eight murders, and they thought they were six sexes, as McArthur had kept his victims as a remembrance "staged" some of them, but what it meant was not cleared up.
All details of these crimes will be revealed during the hearing next week, when friends and family will report the impact on the victims.
McMahon said the statement could read before, and reminded that these statements can not be accessed and do some things. Feeling or threats, for example, are not allowed.
"I do not have to be a position on Monday, where I have to deny that we love" some impacts on the victims "where we should be.
"It's important to see the impact that has had on your life."
McMahon said that all those who would return next week would be interested in "McArthur, going to the whole family."
