(Cindy-Gladue-Homicide) (Alta Note)

The Supreme Court of Canada is being asked to hear an appeal in the case of a trucker accused of murdering an Indigenous woman in Alberta.

Bradley Barton was originally acquitted by a jury of first-degree murder in the death of 36-year-old Cindy Gladue, a sex worker whose body was found in a bathtub in an Edmonton motel room in 2011.

The Alberta Court of Appeal ordered a new trial in June, ruling serious errors were made during the trial and also citing the judge's charge to the jury.

Barton's defence lawyers have filed an application with the Supreme Court for leave to appeal. (The Canadian Press)

(Crash-Three-Dead) (Edm note)

Saskatchewan R-C-M-P say officers were correctly following policy when they called off the pursuit of a stolen truck that was involved a fatal crash about 30 minutes later.

Three Edmonton women were killed and a fourth was injured on Friday when the stolen truck slammed into their minivan near Lloydminster.

A 26-year-old man faces charges including criminal negligence causing death and flight from police.

Staff Sergeant Rob Embree says a stolen vehicle is a serious offence, but a pursuit can be a much more serious danger to the general public and the officers involved.

The R-C-M-P have been criticized for their handling of the incident, but Embree could not say if an outside agency has been asked to investigate. (The Canadian Press)
