Murder trial delayed for Surrey Six killer Jamie Bacon

The murder trial for accused gangster Jamie Bacon has been pushed back to March of 2018. As part of reasons given from the bench, B.C. Supreme Court Justice Kathleen Ker said the defence is crafting an application for a stay of proceedings because of the delay. If successful, Bacon could walk away.

Bacon's trial was supposed to begin next month. Almost 11 years will have passed since the Surrey Six killings when, and if, he finally faces one count of first-degree murder and one count of conspiracy to commit murder.
