Accused triple killer a ‘failure and coward,’ Crown says in closing

Ian Bush is a failure and coward who attempted to rewrite his own sorry history by tying up and murdering three people, a Crown prosecutor alleged in his closing arguments to a jury Monday.

Bush is on trial for three counts of first-degree murder in the slayings of retired tax court judge Alban Garon, his wife, Raymonde Garon, both 77, and their neighbour Marie-Claire Beniskos, 78. The three seniors were killed in the Garons luxury condominium on Riverside Drive on June 29, 2007.

In his closing address to a jury, prosecutor James Cavanagh argued that the accused killer was disgraced and humiliated in front of his family when it was revealed he owed his mother $60,000. Bush was angry at Revenue Canada for holding back money he thought he was owed when he decided to lash out at those he held responsible, said Cavanagh.

Cavanagh alleged thats when Bush plotted the murder of

UPDATE THURSDAY 9:15 A.M.: The jury has found Jeremiah Roberts guilty of murder and robbery in the slaying of John Sullivan.

He will be sentenced on Jan. 13.

EARLIER:

On a cold January evening nearly three years ago, 49-year-old John Sullivan knocked on the door of a home on the city’s west side, court documents say. He thought he was just delivering a pizza.

He didn’t know he was walking into a trap.

Two young men waited on the other side of the door, prosecutors allege. They were drifters, crisscrossing their way across the country on foot or by hitchhiking. A well-meaning woman allowed the two homeless men, Jeremiah Roberts and Derek Romano, to temporarily stay in a barn behind a residence
