On Thursday, 19-year-old Korey Perry was brought to a Gatineau courtroom to be tried on the case of Paul Hines’s homicide. Hines, 57, was a former National Defence employee who stepped in when he witnessed two men stealing pumpkins from outside a Gatineau grocery store last month.
Perry’s lawyer is confident to choose trial by judge and jury. He believes that the case has been fabricated for the general public and media, therefore, only the facts presented in the court are to be believed concrete and valid. The teenager is accused of assault leading to physical damage, later upgraded to homicide after the victim’s death.
Chief of defence staff Gen. Walter Natynczyk said: “He (Hines) comes from a family of Canadian Forces members and he dedicated his whole career to the department. He was always such a gentleman and he was an extraordinary manager and an extraordinary leader and to see this tragedy… So our hearts go out to members of his family.”
Alleged murderer Perry will appear in court again on Nov. 24.
