(Plane-Off-Runway)

Investigators have arrived at Halifax Stanfield International Airport to begin work on piecing together why a Boeing 7-4-7 cargo plane skidded off a runway while landing yesterday.

The crash left a trail of debris and sent four crew to hospital.

SkyLease Cargo Flight K-K0E 4-8-5-4 overshot Runway 14 just after 5 a.m. -- the third serious incident at Stanfield in 15 years, following crashes in 2004 and 2015.

Airport spokeswoman Theresa Rath Spicer says the plane was arriving from Chicago in rainy conditions, and scheduled to be loaded with live lobster destined for China. (The Canadian Press)

A man accused of murdering two police officers and two civilians in Fredericton in August will receive his wish to hire a new lawyer.

During a previous court appearance, Raymond told the court that his lawyer was withholding evidence that would allow him to be exonerated immediately because of temporary insanity.

Raymond is charged with first-degree murder in deaths of Fredericton police constables Sara Burns and Robb Costello, and civilians Donnie Robichaud and Bobbie Lee Wright. (The Canadian Press)
