Frederick Oag trial: Crime scene photos showed bloody stairwell where Shane Sturgess was found

In the early stages of criminal trials, evidence often rolls out like a jigsaw puzzle — sometimes the pieces don’t seem to fit yet.

The hope is by the end of the case, what seemed unusual to focus on at the beginning will make sense.

So it is at Frederick Oag’s Superior Court trial on charges of manslaughter and aggravated assault, which began before a jury of nine women and three men in London this week.

Oag, 41, has pleaded not guilty to the charges in connection with the stabbing death of Shane Sturgess, 45, and the injuring of Mark Desousa on Nov. 9, 2014.

The basic narrative is that Sturgess and Desousa were heading home from the bars at about 3 a.m. when there was a “confrontation” with Oag outside his residence at 150 Adelaide St. N.

Sturgess was stabbed in the leg, specifically in the femoral artery. He lost consciousness on the front step and died a

Juries feel more when they see crime-scene photos in color

What if you sat on a jury that wrongly convicted an innocent person of murder—all because of color crime-scene photos?

It could happen. In research published in the American Psychological Association’s Psychology, Public Policy, and Law journal on March 30, social psychologist Jessica Salerno found that color photos of murders disgust jurors more than the same images in black and white. This disgust leads jurors to want to punish defendants, and to ignore other evidence, according to her study.

Salerno measured the effect of verbal and visual murder evidence on over 500 mock jurors. She found that those who see color photos of a gruesome crime are more likely to feel disgust than those who see the same crime scene in black and white, and more likely to feel disgust than those who see color photos of a less violent crime scene.

Mock jurors who saw bloody color photos were also more

(Editor’s note: This story contains subject matter and language that some may find offensive).

Graphic photos of the crime scene, victim and accused were put on display on Day 3 of Sean Wade Haverty’s first degree murder trial Wednesday.

Photos included Schweitzer’s body laying beneath a yellow emergency blanket, a closely-cropped photo of the gunshot wound on Schweitzer’s neck taken at the autopsy, a photo of the bloodstained white T-shirt Schweitzer was wearing when he was shot and pictures of Haverty’s bleeding and badly lacerated face caused by being hit in the face by a glass bong by Schweitzer just before he shot him.

There were also photos of a bullet hole in a door frame, the second shot that Haverty fired that missed Schweitzer.

Members of Schweitzer’s family, including his mother, remained outside the courtroom while the graphic photos were being shown.

Compensation for crime victims lacking in N.S.: Prof

Professor Benjamin Perrin is calling for immediate action from N.S. Premier Stephen McNeil to update laws and provisions around compensation and counselling for the victims of crimes and their families.

He took part in a three-year University of British Columbia study that shows only Nova Scotia and Newfoundland Labrador do not provide necessary funding and services.

“McNeil should immediately see that services — like counselling — are expanded and financial compensation is raised,” said Perrin, a law professor.

According to his new book, Victim Law: The Law of Victims of Crime in Canada, the province only provides $2,000 over two years for victims or their families, and $4,000 maximum for those who had a loved one who was murdered.

“The Federal Department of justice estimated $100 billion a year is the cost associated with crime in the country, and 83 per cent of that is born out of costs associated with helping victims,”
