Adam Monias, 21, was convicted of second- degree murder this spring following a month- long jury trial. He faces an automatic life sentence with no shot at freedom for at least 10 years. He returned to court Thursday, where the Crown requested five more years be added before Monias can ask the National Parole Board to consider releasing him. “ This was a brutal and unnecessary bloodletting,” prosecutor Wendy Friesen told court. Ian John Folster, 29, was killed following the January 2012 attack inside a Bannerman Avenue home. He suffered more than a dozen major stab wounds throughout his body, including his neck, lungs and scrotum. Defence lawyer Wendy Martin- White has asked for her client to receive the mandatory minimum penalty. Queen’s Bench Justice Rick Saull has reserved his decision until next month. Monias’s older brother, Stephan Monias, was found not guilty of the murder charge by the same jury. However, the 24- year- old was convicted of threatening to kill Folster’s girlfriend, Judy Walker, who witnessed the deadly attack and was the Crown’s key witness. The Crown is now seeking 20 more months in custody for Stephan Monias, in addition to 40 months already spent behind bars. That is the maximum penalty allowed by law for such an offence. Monias is asking to be released immediately with time served. Saull also reserved that decision after hearing arguments Thursday. At trial, the Crown argued Folster was attacked by both accused after he made fun of a third Monias brother being arrested earlier in the evening. Police had been called to Folster’s home, where they found a man in violation of his bail by consuming alcohol. He was taken away by police, and that’s when things apparently turned violent. Walker, who was dating Folster at the time and watched him die, pointed the finger of blame at the Monias brothers. Defence lawyers for the two accused took aim at her evidence in their final arguments, suggesting she had deliberately misled jurors as to who was responsible. The theory of both the Monias brothers was a youth accused was solely responsible for the killing and they played no part, nor had any knowledge, of what he planned to do. www. mikeoncrime. com Hike to killer’s parole eligibility sought By Mike McIntyre SCHOOL in Garden Hill First Nation is suspended indefinitely as residents search for the remains of Teresa Robinson. The 11- year- old’s partial remains were found May 11 in a forested area near the fly- in First Nation 500 kilometres northeast of Winnipeg. It was initially believed she had been mauled by animals, but RCMP later said while animals may have disturbed the girl’s remains, partial autopsy results indicate animals did not cause her death. Police are treating her death as a homicide. Garden Hill residents are now searching for the rest of Teresa’s remains. Northern Grand Chief David Harper, originally from Garden Hill himself, said an overwhelming number of people have come to the reserve to help. The school gym is being used as a cafeteria for volunteers, and school buses are being used to transport volunteers to the search site. It’s not clear when classes will resume at the high school and elementary school. Teresa was last seen leaving a birthday party around 9 p. m. on May 5. A community search began two days later and RCMP were officially notified Teresa was missing the same day her body was found. Search for remains puts classes on hold A_ 14_ May- 22- 15_ FP_ 01. indd A12 5/ 21/ 15 9: 34: 59 PM
