Leon Wokeley murder trial to resume in Fort St. John today

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — The second-degree murder trial of Leon Wokeley, who has been charged in connection with the death of Blueberry First Nation resident Pamela Napoleon over three years ago, is scheduled to resume today.

Wokeley, who is also a member of the Blueberry First Nation, is facing additional charges of arson and indecency to human remains in connection with Napoleon’s death, which occurred in May 2014. The trial was adjourned for a second time in December because the prosecution had not provided Wokeley’s lawyer Georges Rivard with disclosure of its case. Rivard said that such delays are not unusual in the Criminal Justice system.

Wokeley’s trial resumes at 2:00 p.m. on January 17th, 2018 at the Fort St. John law courts.
