Namibia: Verdict Over Killing of Children Postponed

THE delivery of the verdict in the High Court trial of a former security guard accused of having murdered his two children by cutting their throats has been shifted to November.

Garland verdict: Jury finds accused guilty of murder in triple homicide

Douglas Garland has been found guilty on all three counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of five-year-old Nathan O’Brien and his grandparents Kathy and Alvin Liknes.

Garland, 57, who was on trial over the last five weeks, was found guilty by a jury of 12 Calgarians Thursday. The jury deliberated their decision for just over 8 hours.
