(Calgary, Q.B.). The client was initially charged with first degree murder. David Chow succeeded in having the charges reduced after the preliminary inquiry to second degree murder. The difference between first degree and second degree murder is substantial; for the former involves planning and deliberation that results on conviction in a life sentence with no parole for 25 years. A jury trial for second degree murder commenced in February 2014. The theory of the Crown’s case was that the accused mutilated his girlfriend and stabbed her to death. After a lengthy jury trial, David secured a jury verdict of not guilty to second degree murder.
