Ian Bush found guilty of three counts of first-degree murder in tax judge slaying

Ian Bush has been found guilty of three counts of first-degree murder in the gruesome killings of retired tax court judge Alban Garon, his wife, Raymonde, and their neighbour, Marie-Claire Beniskos.

The verdict was delivered Wednesday in an Ottawa courtroom.

In 2007, the three were beaten and suffocated to death with plastic bags in the Garon’s Riverside Drive condo.

The 77-year-old former judge, his 73-year-old wife and Beniskos, 78, were found in a pool of blood on the living-room floor the day after the killings by a worried relative. Alban Garon had a plastic bag over his head, and a hangman’s noose around his neck.

After linking Bush to the killings in 2015, police searched his home and seized a toolkit for murder, which included duct tape, rubber gloves, a sawed-off rifle, ammunition and plastic bags.

Ottawa police also found a handwritten journal, anchored in the ramblings of a man who wrote that

Day 5 of Torre trial calls more first responders to the stand

Friday saw another day in the murder trial against former Guam Police Department officer Mark Torre, Jr. More first responders testified on the witness stand, but could Officer Bert Piolo’s chance of survival been greater had Torre used a different method to stop the bleeding? That’s one point the prosecution is making.  

At least a handful of first responders recalled what they saw when they showed up to the Torre home in Yigo in July 2015.  Lieutenant Gilbert Almario with the Guam Fire Department said, “He was come and he had blood on his shirt.” Almrio, the responding medic, testified that he was checking if Torre had any injuries.
