Crown seeks review of discharge of alleged murderer


Brooks Bulletin

The Crown is asking the Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench to review a provincial court judge’s decision to discharge a man charged with second degree murder.
Following the preliminary hearing of Chase Leland Hehr last month a provincial court Judge discharged the 37-year-old due to lack of proof.
Hehr had been charged in January 2019 with second degree murder of 24-year-old June Rose. Her body was discovered inside her rented Bassano mobile home.
No other details can be released because of a publication ban of any evidence including that heard at the preliminary hearing. Information obtained by The Bulletin at the time of Rose’s death indicates she had been a victim of domestic violence.
The Court of Queen’s Bench will hear the application on April 9 in Medicine Hat.
