A judge will allow evidence from an undercover police operation to be admitted in the trial of two men charged with killing three members of a family near Castor.
Justice Eric Macklin is hearing the first-degree murder trial of Jason Klaus and Joshua Frank, who are accused of killing Klaus’s parents, Gordon and Sandra, and his sister, Monica, at their farm a couple of weeks before Christmas, 2013.
An undercover Mountie who posed as an organized crime boss known as Mr. Big testified how RCMP staged a sting operation in the hope of getting Klaus to confess to killing his own family. The court has already heard that Klaus has admitted he helped plan their deaths.
Klaus was scheduled to testify on Monday, but his lawyer asked for time and proceedings were adjourned until today.
